Wow Beth,
I’m truly honoured! ‘We’ put a lot of time, effort and love into our blogs and to me the nominations are a chance to share what we like, and to learn from each other. I just signed up for UDL4All, thanks for pointing the way!

Like you I’m going to have a very tough time choosing this year. I’m glad to see Connected Principals on your list. As a contributing member I would feel a bit funny nominating it, but I’ve found it an amazing place to learn, and consider many of the contributors my mentors, though I’ve never met them face to face.

Thanks again, (you made my day!)
Dave.
