Rock the Vote (for me?)

So, how's this for exciting news?!  I am a finalist for the Really Good Stuff Education Blog Awards!
I can't even figure out how to describe what I'm feeling...honored? overwhelmed? humbled? thankful? grateful? appreciative? Yeah, all of those things actually and some more I'm sure I'm leaving out. Wow.

I started this blog as a way for me to connect to other teachers and find my way back to the passion I knew I still had for this profession, even in light of some crazy things happening to all of us around the country. I've definitely met that goal for myself, and being honored as a finalist for this award is just icing on the cake - especially considering the amazing company I have in my category!

That old cliche' that it's an honor just to be nominated really is the truth, but if you feel so inclined to vote for my blog in the Elementary 1-3 category, I wouldn't hate it. (Gosh, it's hard to figure out how to ask you to vote without just asking you to vote...I'm not very good at this, huh?)

Click {HERE} to get to the voting page. There are several categories of nominated blogs. You'll find me in the 1-3 group. You can only vote once for one of the blogs in each category between now and midnight on Friday, June 22.

Thanks friends!
