Who's your Hero?

What does a hero mean to you? One web definition – champion: someone who fights for a cause. http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=hero

Who has been your hero for this past year?

In the educational world, I have found several through DEN, Twitters, colleagues, and even in my own classroom – my students. If you’re looking for a hero, start with the 2009 Edublog Award Winners. They have lots of great causes.
