Today in the middle of my math lesson I was surprised by my principal coming in the room with a camera man! She said I had won the Golden Apple Award. One of my fantastic students from last year wrote in to a local news program and nominated me for the award! I was so shocked and overwhelmed! During the whole filming process I was crying! They are playing the piece tomorrow night. Here's a picture of the nomination essay and the basket they gave me. This totally reminds me of why I love teaching: being able to make a difference in kids' lives.
