You don’t know how surreal it was to type that sentence.
As with most of the blogs I read, this is a personal collection of observations, opinion, trivia, and random rants, written first for myself. The learning and connections that have come as a result are the greatest benefits. The site is nothing I’ve ever considered prize-worthy.
However, while it’s hard to wrap my mind around the whole concept of getting an award for writing, I’ll have to borrow the thoughts of a writer far, far above my level, E. L. Doctorow: “But I find when I’m offered an award I tend to accept it.”
So, I want to thank the people at eSchoolNews and to the panel of judges who made the selection. Thanks also to Susan who submitted the nomination – and then forgot to tell me about it! (I love surprises? :-)
In addition, congratulations to the other winners: Frank LaBanca, a science teacher who writes the Applied Science Research blog, Wesley Fryer from Texas Tech University and his blog Moving at the Speed of Creativity, Andrew Rotherham, the voice behind EduWonk.
Finally, thanks to everyone who takes the time to stop by (or collect the RSS feed) and read this Stuff.
Now we’ll have to see where all this notoriety leads – and how much more trouble I can get into. That’s where the fun is. :-)
