I have been in Washington, D.C. for a few days. Here are some of the highlights my students help scheduled for me. 


  1. Dear Mrs Yollis,

    I really enjoyed reading your post. Sorry we missed your award! How are you enjoying Washington D.C? My favorite picture you took on day one was of the Washington Monument. I think it is gorgeous with the nice pool in front of the monument. I can't believe you got to see the The World War II Memorial from 500 feet high. I am so jealous! I really miss you, and hope to see you soon!

    From your former student,

  2. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I am so proud of you and all you have accomplished! You are so deserving of the Bammy Award!

    When I voted for you on the Bammy site, here is what I wrote:

    "I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Linda Yollis for many years. She inspired me to begin blogging 5 years ago, and I have been grateful to her ever since. With her continuous support and encouragement, blogging has had an amazing impact on the quality of my teaching and the performance of my students.

    Linda Yollis continually seeks out new and innovative ways to teach her students and is highly qualified for this honor!"

    Thank you so much for being such an inspiration!
    Mrs. Ranney
