Edublog Awards 2011 - Nominee

The 2011 Edublog Awards are now in progress!  What a surprise to find out I had been nominated for "Best Ed Tech/Resource Sharing Blog" by Denise Krebs.  Please read her nomination blog HERE!

While I have no expectations of winning, I am thrilled, honored and humbled to be nominated alongside so many wonderful educators.  To be listed among the ranks of educators like Richard Byrne (Free Technology for Teachers), Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano (Langwitches), Lisa Nielsen (The Innovative Educator), and so many others whose blogs and resources I often use in my own posts takes my breath away.

Why it was only just one year ago that I really began my blogging journey.  The post at that time was reflecting upon an experience my students had in the classroom.  In that post I shared one or two links for my readers.  From that time forward I have tried to include a host of resources that enhance the topic of my posts. 

Should you feel compelled to VOTE for me (no email required), please visit the Edublog Awards Blog and select the category Best Ed Tech/Resource Blog and find Teaching is Elementary.  Please vote for my friend, Denise Krebs, for Best Teacher Blog, Dare to Care, while you are there as she is a wonderful teacher who inspires so many!

Even if you don't vote, please visit the Edublog Award site anyway, as you are sure to find several new and interesting blogs to follow!  


  1. Congratulations on the achievement. You certainly deserve it just on the basis of your enthusiasm for blogging.

  2. So proud of you. A great accomplishment. Of course I voted for you - you deserve it. Way to go, Nance!

  3. Thank you Beth and Lorry. I appreciate your support and kind words.

  4. You are a phenomenal teacher for both adults and students and a true role model for life long learning. I am so proud to know and work with you.


  5. Hi Nancy,

    Congratulations on the nomination! You have a fabulous Ed Tech blog, and I can see why you were nominated!

    I agree, it's such an honor to be listed next to so many others who are inspirations and fabulous examples. It's also a great way to get conversations about education, learning, and how web 2.0 and other tools/networks can help improve education.

    Kind regards,

  6. Nancy!!! So excited for you and it is well deserved! I voted!

  7. Congrats, Nancy!! So proud of you! :)

  8. @Jean, Laurie & Becky - Thank you so much for your kind words of support.

    @Tracy - You are so right to point out that the awards are a great way to get conversations about education and learning going. Personally, I have learned so much through blogging and the connections I have made while blogging. I feel that this has to be transferred in some way to my classroom and my students. I think they are the reason that I continue to do this as I have their best interests at heart. Through the use of Web2.0 tools I see and feel their engagement and enthusiasm.

  9. Nancy,
    What a delightful post that I missed until today! However, I did vote for you each day voting allowed.

    Thanks for continuing to share valuable resources, Nancy. They are always here whenever I remember to check my Reader and catch up on my friends' blogs.

    It's been a great year, and now we are ready to celebrate our one year anniversary of #ksyb. I think Sue and Ronnie are working on something for that!

    Take care,


I welcome your comments and ideas!!
