2013 EduBro Awards



Yep.

It's true! 

I'm the proud recipient of not one, but TWO 2013 EduBro Awards.

What's that?  You don't KNOW what an EduBro Award is?

"The #EduBroAwards show was conceived as a way for people to celebrate one another after a long year of working hard, sharing, caring and generally being awesome. There are too many awards shows that focus on the few when we should all be celebrating the many. That is what makes our awards show so special and different from all of the rest. We want everyone to be recognized for how truly awesome they are. We have unlimited awards to give out and we can't wait to see the craziness that ensues when we hold out live Google Hangout to hand out the awards. "  (from The Nerdy Teacher's blog)

They're self-nominated?  

Well...yeah, they are...but they're peer-nominated too.  You have to nominate yourself for an award in order to nominate friends for awards as well.  

What?  No voting?

Yeah, no voting.  Everyone nominated receives an award!  

But still...it's an honor!  An achievement!  Fun to share!  Right?  

Right!

You didn't watch the Edubro Awards LIVE on December 19?

Whaaaaat?  You really missed out.

Check out the archived video here on Nick's blog as well as the list of all the awesome award winners. Hosted by the amazing duo of Nick Provenzano and Tim Gwynn, it is everything that's right about education. It was so much fun to hear Nick give a shout-out (or 2!) to me as well as to so many of my friends.

What awards did I win?

Best Doctor Who T-Shirts  - (self-nominated)

The Daniel LaRussa "You're the Best Around" Award - (nominated by my pal, Matthew Winner)



So, loud and proud, I'll continue to sing the praises of being an EduBro Award winner.  Truly a privilege to be included among so many amazing educators.

Thanks Nick & Tim!

Review: Attachments

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I'm not sure why I waited to read this book. I had heard others mention they loved ALL of Rainbow Rowell's books, even her "adult" one, Attachments. (Side note: Why does mentioning it's an adult book sound so dirty?! It's not at all. It's just not a YA book. It's actually cleaner than many of the YA books I've read...) Anyway, I requested this title from my library and was pleased to pick it up a few days ago. I immediately began reading it. It was a breath of fresh air for me. Perhaps because the characters WERE adults, and not angst-ridden teens or supernatural beings, or any of the other stereotypes it seems like I've been reading too much of lately...

Rainbow Rowell has a way of writing characters that you wish you knew in real life. They're interesting, sincere, and realistic. I especially enjoyed the format of this book with the many emails between Jennifer and Beth. Lin…

1-2-3 Wonder

Collaborating is one of the aspects of teaching that I most enjoy.  As a school librarian, I have the unique opportunity to collaborate, teach, and work with many different teachers and students in my school building, grades K-12.  This school year, one of my professional goals is to collaborate outside of my school and even outside of Indiana. 

When David Etkin mentioned on Twitter that he had an idea for a Wonder extension lesson, I immediately said "I'm in!"  We talked it out a bit and decided to recruit a few more people to the collaborating party from the #WONDERschools initiative.  Davidforced  persuaded Reilly into participating in this project with her 5th grade students.  

We worked together in Google Docs on the lesson idea, questions, and discussed how to best implement this in our classrooms.   Then we decided how to combine and showcase what was done in each of our classes. The cool part of this collaboration was that we used several methods of communication: …

Totoro #PostItNoteArt

Our post-it note art for the fourth 9 weeks this school year is from the movie My Neighbor Totoro.  It seemed to be a bigger undertaking than usual.  I think the main reason for this was because we had to alter the patterns quite a bit to fit our windows.  This always presents a challenge to keep the scale the same and make sure the finished art is still recognizable.  Connolly does a great job with this and usually eyeballs the changes.  I, on the other hand, prefer to be able to follow the pattern row by row.

Time wise, the three forest spirits were created in about six total hours.

Daughter finished the #Totoro #PostitNoteArt on our library windows. Like every one we've created, it's now my favorite. 💙 (Top: view from hallway; bottom: view inside library) #myneighbortotoro #myfriendtotoro #TotoroSocietyART #TotoroisHere #RMHSLibrary @postit
