There are times. There are moments. You know the ones. The ones that you are afraid to share with anyone else for fear they may think you are bragging? This is one of those moments.
My staff and students nominated me for teacher of the year. Cool. Way cool! I am humbled. Especially because I only taught for two weeks this year – before I was off with my diagnosis of stage IV ovarian cancer.
I would share this news with my Mom. You can brag to your mom and dad and they won’t think you are a stuffed shirt. They are proud of you.
Since my Mom and Dad are no longer with me – I’m going to share my news with you – my blogging community.
My “crew” created a facebook site and video to post all the nomination letters and testimonials. They are intense. They are filled with secrets that all teachers need to know. Read them. They are heart – felt, raw, honest.
These are my students. This is the page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1568591453412739/1570866366518581/?notif_t=group_activity
I am blessed.
