Carnival of Educators: A Call for Help

Help!  I need help to keep this carnival running.

I started it because there was an absence of carnivals at the time.  I keep it going becuase... well I like it.

If you would like to become more involved and perhaps get a boost to your blog traffic, please consider emailing and volunteering to host a carnival or too.

Beyond that, and for obvious reasons, this carnival is being posted a bit bare bones.  All the entries are fascinating, as I have deleted all the the spammy stuff, so enjoy!
