As many of my tweeps and facey-bookies already know, we learned earlier this week that we won this lovely award. It’s quite humbling. From now on, just make sure you address me as “Miz Accolade.”
Seriously though, this one’s for the kids. Their voices are rarely heard and Yo Miz! hands them the microphone.
This one’s also for teachers. The media rarely covers stuff from inside the classroom. They’re not often allowed in. Although lots of great stuff happens in there, it’s rarely considered “newsworthy.” Creative classrooms can’t compete with media coverage which chases the If it bleeds, it leads dictum.
Still, what’s as soulful as teaching?
