I have the incredible honor and privilege to be a Scholastic Top Teaching national blogger. From educators across the country, only a few educators spanning Kg. through middle school are selected to be a part of their Top Teaching blogger panel. Last year was my first year as a Scholastic blogger, and it was a wonderful experience for both myself and my students.
I have been asked to blog for Scholastic again this year, and cannot wait to share our classroom adventures with other teachers to connect with and inspire them. If you wish to see examples of previous blog posts, please check out my Scholastic Top Teaching blogger page (Click HERE).
Recently one of my articles was also published in Scholastic Instructor magazine. Another was recognized by SmartBrief Education as the August 2015 post of the month for outstanding content. As part of that recognition, next Wednesday, 9/23/15, I will be interviewed on Education Talk Radio.
All students photographed in the blog entries at the above link signed specific release forms in order to appear on the Scholastic blog. While I typically try NOT to photograph faces, occasionally I may. These release forms are very similar to what you sign during registration for our district, but Scholastic uses their own for legal purposes and consistency in the release forms. If you are willing to let your child be photographed for Scholastic blog posts, please print and sign the attached media release form. I will also send home paper copies as back-ups or in case you are unable to print.
Thank you for your support, as your children help be examples for and inspiration to teachers and classrooms across the nation. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
Please sign and return ASAP.
