When one is awarded the meme, according to the originator Guhlin, they are supposed to Write a Post about how Blogging has Rocked your World then:
- respond to the meme and link back to this blog entry
- leave a comment on this blog entry and then ask 5 more people to participate
- Notify those 5 people by sending them a quick note (a tweet prob would work).
- I wouldn't have met so many wonderful individuals from around the globe. I have met (virtually, through their blogs of course) people from all across the United States, Norway, Sweden, Argentina, Australia and more! They have opened my eyes to worlds, cultures and ideas that I may never have had the chance to experience.
- I wouldn't have been as reflective in my teaching practice. As a teacher we are always reflecting. But writing it down makes one even more accountable for their actions. I'll often reflect upon a lesson that was taught in class and write a blog discussing ways I could add/change resources or techniques that will make me a more effective teacher.
- I wouldn't have explored resources and researched content with such ferocity. Writing posts sends me on quests to find information, sift through what is helpful and fresh, and keeps me current with my teaching practices. Always looking for new tools to share with my students and colleagues. Always looking to learn something new!

- I wouldn't have dared to present at a conference or workshop out of my district! Just recently I created a presentation that will hopefully get people interested in Blogging and was allowed to present at the Massachusetts Computer Using Educator's Conference 2011! I feel so strongly that everyone has something to share & wanted people to realize that everyone can BLOG!
Blogging Has ROCKED my World! Thank you Denise & Sheri for awarding me this Meme to once again take the time to reflect! (I should be adding you too, but then the meme would be a cirlce, right! You both have given me so much!)
I am passing this #Rockstar Meme onto the following people:
- Carol Ann Palmieri - My sister who has inspired me in so many ways with her wonderful talents - blogging among them: MA Homes Real Talk!
- Laura Komos - A teacher who uses and shares ideas about the Daily5 & CAFE (which is a way to structure & teach reading) - Delightful Daily 5 Cafe
- Laura Devlin - a fourth grade teacher who I met through Twitter & whose blog is just full of thought-provoking ideas and a passion for teaching: Teach Children Well
- Erica Shepherd - A fourth grade teacher with fabulous ideas and resources: Shepherd's Shining Stars
- Heather Mathews - a teacher fairly new to blogging who reflects upon her teaching and is not afraid of change: Hot Pants Education
