I recently won the Edublog award for the Best Individual Tweeter. I really don’t know much about this award but I do know that it was an award given to me by my peers and followers and that makes it a very special blessing.

Over the past year, I have had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people who are all involved in early childhood education. Here are a few others that I have had the privilege of getting to know along the way and who also won an Edublog award…

Teacher Tom won for the Best Teacher Blog

Donna and Sherry of Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning won for the Best Group Blog

Karen from PreKinders was the runner up for Best Resource Sharing Blog.

Teacher Tom wrote a wonderful article that expresses my view as well for this award. What this award represents is our ever-growing online early childhood education community that has come together through this unique online environment to support each other and work together to achieve a common goal. In my mind, that goal is to create excellence in early childhood education.  We each do this in our own way and that is what I love the most.

What I love…

I love that we all bring different perspectives into the field of early childhood education. I love that we are all passionate about the field of early childhood education. I love that we are both similar and different in our approach and classroom environments. I love that we all share the same desire to help teachers and children be successful in the early childhood learning environment. I love that we care about young children.

I love what others have taught me since I have started Teach Preschool too! I am motivated every time I see a new idea and a new approach to go into the classroom and try it out. I am motivated by the folks who follow me on Twitter and Facebook to do my very best everyday.

A special thank you to Vanessa Levin for nominating us all. She deserves all the props and her own award for all she has accomplished too!

If you aren’t following these folks, let me invite you to do so. They are truly exceptional and I appreciate all they do for me.
