ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the concept of community interaction through collaborative learning. He questions the important lessons of community to professional lives, as they often seem to forget it. He also indicated that Internet, NSTA Conferences on Science Education, and "The Science Teacher" (TST) are supports to exchanging ideas in science teaching community. He suggests to set a goal that will become one's life actively involved in the dynamic community.
