My BAMMY Nomination! Voting is Open!

I am deeply honored to be nominated for 
a Bammy Award

About the BAMMY Awards: 

The Bammy Awards is a cross-discipline honor that identifies and acknowledges the extraordinary work being done across  the entire education field every day-- from teachers, principals and superintendents, to school nurses, support staff, advocates, researchers, school custodians, early childhood specialists, education journalists,  parents and students.  The Bammy Awards were created to help reverse the negative national narrative that dominates the education field.

 My BAMMY nomination: 
Thank you Mrs. Hembree for your nomination and thoughtful praise!

"Linda Yollis is a burst of California sunshine in education and the student blogging world. She started blogging with her students when blogging was in its infancy. Now her classroom blog has had over 1 million views people around the globe look to her and her students as the models of quality blogging. I consider Linda my friend, but also an inspiration to all the teachers and students who want to give a voice to elementary students and their learning."

The BAMMY Awards are a wonderful way to bring attention to the good things happening in education. 

The voting ends on May 15. There are many nominations, and I encourage you to check them out and support the nominees!

  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis,
    You are most deserving of this honor. I hope in September you will be traveling to Washington, DC. to experience walking the red carpet at the Bammy awards and receiving the national recognition you so deserve!
    Your WA friend,
    Mrs. Hembree
