Nominate a Special Person in the Field of Education for a Bammy Award!

I’m a proud member of the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences, and our goal is “to promote ‘cross-discipline recognition’ of excellence across every sector of the education field.” With that in mind, we’re holding our first annual Bammy Awards! These awards will be given “to identify, recognize and celebrate excellence in education throughout the entire field -- from teachers, principals and superintendents to school nurses, support staff, advocates, researchers, early childhood specialists, education journalists, facilities maintenance staff, special needs professionals, school board members, parents and more.”

With the Bammy Awards, we recognize that teachers are just part of a larger team that educates our children. And now you have the opportunity to nominate those special people for a Bammy Award! The winners will be invited to attend a red-carpet awards event in the fall in Washington, D.C. Head over to now to nominate someone who is making a real difference in the field of education. Nominations will be open until April 30, 2012.

P.S. I hope while you’re there that you’ll vote for a very special person I nominated: Mark Hundley! You can VOTE HERE.
