Edublogs Nominations

I've have only one nomination this year - For 'Best New Blog' I'd like to nominate "Evolving Educators" by Scott Rocco.

Voting hasn't been announced yet but when it opens I'm sure Scott would appreciate a vote his way.

#NJED Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

The Virginia Coast was largely spared from the effects of hurricane Sandy.  Our colleagues up north, however, were not so lucky and much of the New York / New Jersey shore is devastated.  TeacherCast has started a relief effort and asked others to spread the word.  If you're able, click through to find ways to help.
