WHOA! So you're not going to believe this...I couldn't believe it!
The week before Christmas break, I was called by our local radio station because one of my former students nominated me as their Terrific Teacher Tuesday winner! Me! The one that likes anonymity in her life was not only interviewed on the radio without warning or time to prepare (I kept praying...please don't mumble. Please be fluent. Just listen to the whole question and don't interrupt.) but I was also photographed by our communications director alone until I told him that I would like to be photographed with my little friend...who is now a fifth grader (Where does the time go?) for our district's website! I didn't blog about this or really tell anyone because although I was honored and excited, I just didn't want to make a big deal over it. Anyway, my radio debut was yesterday and I sounded really giddy...like first year of teaching giddy! But that's okay...it's really how I am when I'm with my kiddos! And...it's kind of a big deal so I'm enjoying the moment!
Here's my award and the picture of me with my former student:
Then, we have this monthly fundraiser with a local pizza place where they donate a portion of the day's sales to the school and the classroom that has the most orders wins a portion of the sales too! Not only did my class win with the most orders of the day, we also won money from what the teacher's ordered for lunch! HOLY COW! The kiddos are dying to help me pick out some new brag tags!
2012 seems to be off to a really good start for me! Hope it continues!
It was time to take down our 2012 Resolutions and make room for some cute snowmen and few Pinterest inspired penguins!
Tomorrow is our last day of school this week as Friday is a staff day to work on grade cards...which I haven't even started yet! I'm still grading papers for crying out loud! :)
Hope everyone is having a good week! Happy Hump Day!
