Every year in January, the staff at my school votes for the teacher of the year. I'm so honored to have won this year! It is truly a humbling experience to have my peers think so highly of me. It's hard to not be overwhelmed with feelings of validation and respect. I feel that God has blessed me with the abilities to do this job with excellence. It's nice to see that expressed in a tangible way.
My school is not a very traditional school, so the traditional bouquet of flowers was not going to cut it. Instead, I received the above arrangement of Hot Pockets® and toilet paper. Something for both ends.
Part of the deal is that I have to complete a very detailed series of essay questions for the candidate application form. I thought I'd share each one in a series of posts this week.
