Proud Canadian Blog Award

     I am thrilled to announce that I've been awarded a new blog award! Not only is it awesome to be recognized by other bloggers but this award is Canadian-based as well! Almost 80% of the education blogs I follow are American and I always have a hard time finding other Canadian bloggers, so it is really cool to be linked up with some other Canadians :)

     I want to send out a BIG thank you to the lovely Patti from Madly Learning for awarding me with the new Proud Canadian Blog Award and working towards getting other Canadian blogs connected! Thanks to Patti's blog, I've been able to find a lot of other local bloggers who have been more than willing to share their experiences with me.
Here are the rules:
1 ) Link up on Patti's blog as a Canadian Teacher Blogger
2 ) Post the award banner on your blog to let other bloggers know you've 
     won this award
3 ) Pick 2 free Canadian Education resources that you can share with others
     and post them or link to them.
4 ) Pick 4 new Canadian Teacher Bloggers to follow (there is a big list on
     Patti's blog)
5 ) Pass this award on to 5 Canadian Teacher Bloggers, explain why you
     nominated them, and share the link to Patti's post

Done and done! I am proudly displaying the banner on the right hand side of my blog.
