I wasn’t able to make it to Washington, D.C. today for the program, but I was just named “Educator Commentator and Blogger of the Year” at The Bammy Awards.

I’m honored, and at the same time want to recognize the many others who received Bammy Awards in different categories and those who were nominated. The line between awardees and nominees is really an invisible one, and the line between awardees, nominees and many other educators who did not receive nominees is equally transparent.

One great benefit these kinds of awards do offer is that they provide a resources sharing lots of educators doing great work, and lots of new people on Twitter and new blogs to follow.
