They announced the District Elementary Teacher of the Year. Well, I was so excited. I was clapping and looking around, just dying to see who this fabulous teacher was!! That's when the gentleman next to me, tapped me and said "Aren't you from Huggins Elementary?" I politely shook my head yes, slightly wondering why he was asking. he looked at me and said......."that's you they are calling!!"
I have been named the District Elementary Teacher of the Year for Lamar Consolidated Independent School District!!
I am still amazed that they picked me. It is an incredible honor and I promise to represent my school and my district with great pride!
So, what's the next step? Well, for the next week or so I will be dedicating myself to writing an essay for Region 4 that expresses my sincere love of what I am so lucky to do each and everyday....to touch the lives of children through education, compassion and love.
