2010 Edublog Nominations

Yes, it is that time of year again when Edubloggers from around the world make their ultimate selections for the Annual Edublog Awards. The awards are a great way to find new educational blogs to follow and post to, and unique Twitterers to follow who share the best Tweets- and a multitude of innovative resources to discover.
Every day is an educational journey in the day and life of an Educational Blogger or an avid Twitterer. It is always difficult to nominate one particular individual for each specific category.

Fall is a Time for Giving Back to the Online Community of Educators

Fall is my favorite time of year and it is a time for giving back to the online community.  Every Spring and Fall I try to create a comprehensive list of grant opportunities for educators.  This grant list is my way to give back to the online community of educators who help me everyday, but to also assist your efforts to make it through the school year with a few more golden opportunities and resources for your students.  Here is once again the golden ticket of grant resources to share with all of you.  Please share and distribute with your educational staff and good luck with writing and applying for some of the unique educational grant opportunities!

This is the time of year that over 30,000 tundra swans, snow geese, wood ducks and mallards are enroute on their migration journey to the south. We are very fortunate that our home location is right on the path of their dedicated migration route. These beautiful creatures stop over to "rest and refuel" in the newly created protective habitat area- before they take off to endure another 1500 miles of their journey.
Here are some photos and video clips of these magnificent birds.


With the changing of the seasons brings changes for my professional Innovative Educator Consulting business. The past year I have hired a administrative assistant, the one and only Miss Kim Berg. I was so fortunate to hire her, and the best part is- I have known Kim for over 8 years, because she was my program assistant I originally hired at my past technology direc…
