Thank You for the Nomination
I just wanted to say thank you.
It came as a complete surprise this week to find out that some (many?) of you had nominated me for the Best Latin@ Education Blogger in the Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) Awards. I am extremely flattered to be simply considered in the same category as Miguel Corona and Amor Montes de Oca, both of whom have incredibly informative blogs. If you are the voting type, I would love your support. You may vote here.
Writing MommyMaestra motivates me and inspires me with my own children's education. I have learned so much from you, dear readers, and from the online education community. I cannot tell you how joyful I am each time I receive a message from a mother or teacher in the community saying how much they get out of MommyMaestra.
Our goal as parents is to raise healthy and happy children. It is also our responsibility to try our best to equip them with the tools they need to succeed in life. And one of the best tools we can give them is a good education. We have to be cheerleaders, teachers, listeners, mentors, and fighters. Because if we do not fight for our children, then who will?
I have watched MommyMaestra grow into something bigger than I imagined. We have become a group of Latina moms and teachers who know how to work together, help one another, and share our resources so that all may benefit from our own individual experiences.
MommyMaestra would not be what it is today without its readers. You are a wonderful group. I'm happy to have communicated with many of you and look forward to talking - and maybe even meeting! - many more of you in the future.
