In a colossal lapse of judgment, the BAM Radio Network has asked the incomparable Tony Sinanis to host the 2015 Bammy Awards…and apparently I get to be his sidekick!! I have secured a utility belt to hold all of the hair gel he requires, made requests to have only blue M&Ms at the site, talked to the staff to ensure that the dressing room is at a perfect 73.6 degrees and have upgraded my phone so I can hold all of the pictures he will make me take of him during the evening. Ha! We are very excited to help bring the stories of great students, teachers, administrators, and innovators to the world through this event. Our passion is clearly in the area of Telling Our School Story. The book we wrote and the radio show we host are predicated on getting the amazing work our kids do into the worlds of those who have a different view of public education. The theme of the Bammy Awards is Breaking the Code of Silence. Check out the video as it presents a quick overview of what we can do as educators to tell the story of our schools.
So…we hope you will join us, physically and or virtually on Saturday, September 26th as we hope to help tell the great stories of our schools. It may get a little crazy…I have purchased an Ab Roller and plan on using it 4-6 times to ensure that I am physically fit enough for the event…or at least it will strengthen my core and help if I am laughing too much!! One thing is true…the theme of Breaking the Code of Silence requires loud voices…and BAM could not have picked 2 louder. Let’s do this!
