13 Reasons to Vote For This Blog in the Weblog Awards

First of all forgive the self-promotion....Second I realize I am woefully behind in the voting. A little old teacher's site like mine simply can't compete against a powerhouse professor's site, but still it's fun to see how many votes I've gotten and I'm honored to receive each and every one of them. They are a huge validation for what I do here and I appreciate them so much.

Vote for me because....

1. You never know what you’ll find when you visit…interesting stories about presidents, a glimpse into my classroom, or a personal reflection

2. I work really, really hard on this site

3. I am passionate about what I do whether it’s my teaching or writing

4. Not only do I educate my students, but I educate each and every visitor who sticks around long enough

5. I support my fellow bloggers with comments, links, and virtual high-fives and hugs

6. This is is the only excitement I have in my poor, mundane academic life.....:)

7. A blog award will legitimize my efforts in the eyes of my neglected family

8. Because history really is elementary!

9. My students will think it’s really cool if I win, and we will have a great reason to have punch and cookies in the classroom.

10. The Weblog winner button will look really great on my sidebar

11. You enjoy reading about my quirky Southern family

12.Because I might soon tire of this fal-de-ral without encouragement and Dear Sister will be very cross……ok, that may be a little too dramatic.

13. As a Social Studies teacher it is my duty to remind you to vote……if not for me, vote for someone!

BUT if you want to vote for me follow this link!

You've got my vote just because teachers need to stick together. Besides, you have alot of great postings.

Good luck!

Great list... you deserve to win. All teschers do (sraight from the mouth of a Mom with a 13 year old girl)!
My TT is posted.
Have a great week.

Awesome list and great shameless self-promotion (SSP -- we're trademarking the acronym *grin*). Best of luck in the Weblog awards -- I'm going to go vote for you now, in fact!

Thanks everyone for visiting and for the kind comments.

I guess I'll give my concession speech on Saturday.:)

wow...if I had not already voted for you, I certainly would have after your list - I especially love your plea to simply vote (quite the social study argument right there!)
