A note from blog author, Zach Stoller on his 1st Place Finish:
I started the Thomas Elementary Art blog in 2009 during the middle of my first year as a full time art teacher. I originally started the blog to share what was going on in the art room with the parents of my students. I soon began getting comments and messages from art teachers from all around the US as well as a few from teachers in other countries. I was thrilled to be a finalist this year, and I’m truly humbled to have come in 1st place. It is validation for all of the years of hard work that I have put into my job. Thank you to all of my readers, students, parents, and friends who voted for Thomas Elementary Art.
Looking for more wonderful blogs to follow this year? Check out the other 10 finalists (they are all amazing!): Art in the Big Green Room, Splats, Scraps and Glue Blobs, Dali’s Mustache, Art Teacher’s Hate Glitter, Art is Basic, Artchoo, Art Project Girl, Organized Chaos, Tales From The Traveling Art Teacher and Teach Kids Art.
All of the winners and finalists will receive customized Art Ed Blog of the Year Badges which they are invited to display on their blog’s sidebar or other prominent position linking back to this post helping the entire Art Ed community discover more great new blogs every day!
