Thank you to @wallaceisabella for nominating me for the #Twitteratichallenge -  I'm honoured and love the support that is available on Twitter. We are still trying to raise money for #kakuma and so spreading the word through any means is great!

There are so many people that I work with regularly that I would love to include but that's against the rules! (see below) Plus it would take me ages are there are so many of you! You know who you are :) There are also other people I would love to nominate but know they have already been included (late to the party as ever) 
I have bent the rules a little though! My 5 nominees are 

@musicmind - Nina Jackson
Quite possibly the loveliest and most supportive person on twitter. The Ninja is always there if you need her - advice, information, compassion or fizzy sherbet lemons - what would I do without her?

@betsySalt - Emma 
Fridays would just not be the same without her 'hugs' for people on twitter!

@theheadsoffice - Julia S thousands of children each week respond to her prompts, hundreds of comments, shared working and real human support 

Always positive, always motivational - ready with support and a listening ear.

@renoonog37 Rachel
I first 'met' Rachel on a 365 photo challenge and we share images and comments most days - we have a love of images, nature, children and Yorkshire in common.

I think my world on twitter is one where I surround myself with supportive people - kindness is so important.

 Here are the rules of the challenge (as set out by @TeacherToolkit ):


There are only 3 rules.
  1. You cannot knowingly include someone you work with in real life.
  2. You cannot list somebody that has already been named if you are already made aware of them being listed on #TwitteratiChallenge
  3. You will need to copy and paste the title of this blogpost and (the Rules and What To Do) information into your own blog post.

What To Do?

There are 5 to-dos you must use if you would like to nominate your own list of colleagues.
    1. Within 7 days of being nominated by somebody else, you need to identify colleagues that you rely regulalry go-to for support and challnege. They havenow been challenged and must act as participants of the#TwitteratiChallenge.
    2. If you’ve been nominated, you must write your own #TwitteratiChallengeblogpost within 7 days. If you do not have your own blog, try @StaffRm.
    3. The educator nominated, that means you reading this must either: a) record a video of themselves (using Periscope?) in continuous footage and announce their acceptance of the challenge, followed by a pouring of your (chosen) drink over a glass of ice.
    4. Then, the drink is to be lifted with a ‘cheers’ before the participant nominates their five other educators to participate in the challenge.
    5. The educator that is now (newly) nominated, has 7 days to compose their own #TwitteratiChallenge blogpost and identify who their top-5 go-to educators are.
