Say What?!? I'm a Finalist?!?

Edublogs has an annual recognition for bloggers in the educational fields. It's to highlight teachers and students who are adventurous enough to post their ideas and learning experiences to the world. Classroom blogging provides students with a worldwide audience that is authentic and tangible. This is the time of year that Edublogs opens its polls for participants to vote on their favorites.

So yesterday morning I went to the site to vote because our district's junior high, Cactus Canyon, has an award winning blog, the Cougar News Blog and I wanted to show my support.  

Out of curiosity, I clicked on the various categories to see if I could recognize any other blogs and to my surprise, I found that my blog had been nominated.

Maybe I'm alone in this, maybe I'm not the only one, but when I started this blog, I had no idea if people would read what I had to say. But I knew that I wanted, maybe needed, a space to share out my ideas. And so every post I have written and will write in the future is composed simply because I want to connect with others. Whether or not we agree is besides the point. I want to challenge you in your thinking just as much as I want to be challenged by your thinking.
