Nominations for the 2011 Edublog Awards

November 19, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments
Through his blogs, Matthew Ray shares his passion for his world, his work, his students and anything else that has touched or influenced his life.
I am nominating his blog From the Desk of Mr.Foteah, where he shares his thoughts and opinions penned in an honest and thought provoking way, for Best Teacher Blog.  Sometimes making them laugh, sometimes making them cry, he inspires his readers as he challenges them to change the way they think or teach.
According to Matthew, he blogs because, “I inspire people and that inspires me.”  Therefore, I am also nominating two of his blog posts for a 2011 Edublog Award for Most Influential Blog Post.
The first nomination was featured on WordPress in August 2011 as Freshly Pressed: Dear Me (On the Eve of My First Year Teaching). As a teacher beginning his fourth year, he reflected on his three years of experiences and wrote a letter to himself as if he were beginning his first year of teaching. His lessons learned were heartfelt and certainly inspired his readers.
An avid blogger himself,  this year, Matthew  shared this love as he undertook the  exciting challenge of teaching his third graders, (all children with IEPS) the basics of blogging. He’s written many  wonderful blog posts which follow their adventures with blogging but one of his most influential is 10 Reasons Your Students Should Be Blogging. The practical educational and social reasons for having students blog influenced many members of his own school as well as his PLN to start blogging with their class.
