Edublogs Finalist

eddies15

Woo-hoo! What great news I received this week when I found out this blog was not only nominated, but also is a finalist in the Best Library Blog in the 2015 Edublog Awards. To be nominated and given the boost of confidence that there are indeed people who read this blog and value it means the world to me. To those who nominated this blog, please know that I really appreciate your support. Blogging makes me a better teacher, writer and learner. It also pushes me beyond the walls of my classroom to learn from other terrific bloggers in my PLN. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

The purpose of the Edublog Awards is to draw attention to the educational value of social media. Secondly, it provides an invaluable resource list of blogs for teachers to read and learn from.  That’s the part I love the most. I love to read what others are writing and see their classroom ideas. When we learn from each other the world becomes our classroom. Can it get any better than that?

If you would like to vote for this blog, you can go here.  Voting closes on Wednesday, December 11th at 11:59pm EST (8:59 PST).
