  1. Dear Mrs Yollis and Mrs Morris,

    What a great interview Chris Betcher conducted with you both. I loved the tone in your voices as you really did got a sense of just how wonderful blogging really is.

    Must say I really enjoyed listening to you both, getting your views on how you both use blogging within the school classroom and teaching your wonderful students.

    I do believe that this is such a wonderful aspect of learning which opens up the door on so many levels.

    I have seem first hand just how far blogging can take you and I am only a parent, I think it is just amazing.

    Keep up the awesome work Mrs Yollis and Mrs Morris. You both are great examples of just how wonderful blogging is and what you can achieve.

    Well done ladies.
    From your blogging bubby,

  2. @ Mrs Yollis, thank you for posting about our podcast! I really hope lots of people listen to it because I would love more teachers and students to get into blogging! You and I both realise the benefits of blogging (as do our students and parents). We want to spread the word!

    It was fun to chat and record the podcast with you!

    @ AA, as always thank you for your support. I know you will continue to support Mrs Yollis and I for a long time!

    I wish there was an Edublog Award for Best Parent Support because I would be nominating you!

    Your friend,
    Mrs Morris

  3. @ AA,

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to our interview! It was great fun being with Mrs. Morris and Mr. Betcher. We're all so passionate about blogging and its benefits...hopefully other teachers and administrators will see the value and join in.

    I agree completely with what Mrs. Morris proclaimed. If there was an Edublog Award for Best Parent Support you'd win! Your support is so appreciated and you continue to be an outstanding role model for other parents! Thank you!

    @ Mrs. Morris,

    What a great time it was to be with you yesterday! Hopefully our enthusiasm and helpful hints will encourage more teachers and administrators to get involved.

    I hope you're enjoying a much deserved vacation! Hopefully the weather is cooperating!
