About two weeks ago, I entered an international contest - ePals 2010 Teacher Ambassadors. I explained how ePals helped me and my students, and what our latest project, "Romanian students help their fellows in Ghana" means. Epals is a good platform to be used for establishing contacts and setting up projects with people all around the world. I have been a member since 2005, and among the countries we worked with, I name only a few: Bahrain, Brazil, USA, France, Poland, Qatar, Canada or Ghana.
Today I received an email announcing me that...
"Congratulations! We are pleased to announce that you are one of the winning entries in our ePals Teacher Ambassador Contest. We received many great entries from around the world. Our panel of 9 judges found so many quality entries that we increased our awards to include 10 Teacher Ambassadors. Winners will be announced today, on the ePals site at 5:00 pm, EST.
The judges were very impressed with your entry, “Romanian Students Helping Their Fellows in Ghana.” Please see a few of their comments below:
• Fantastic to see students take action!
• Video is great, for both ePals and the teacher.
• Teacher video is terrific! Action orientation is great too. Would love to see more samples of exchanges (emails, etc.)
• Fantastic promotional video for ePals. Would love to hear more in the ppt about how the students helped. Great teacher! Great students."
I am overwhelmed. I am speechless. What can I say?
