Teaching Award

Today, handsome hubby and I,  traveled to Winston-Salem to watch our daughter receive a teaching award!
She was nominated by students and parents in her classroom and was then selected from all of the teachers nominated, as the Teacher of the Year, for her area.
It's a dark photo, but she's receiving a thousand dollar award for her school and a hundred dollar award, for her classroom.
This is her fourth year of teaching kindergarten and we are so happy that she was selected for this honor.  The company sponsoring the award is a nationally known "Super-center" and they select the winners from the teachers that are nominated.  Teachers often have a thankless job, so this is such a blessing to have her hard work and dedication rewarded.  Go Girl... we are so proud of you baby daughter!

Tell her congrats--that is truly a honor. Teachers really do have a thankless job (my father taught high school for 34 yrs) and I am sure this makes your daughter happy and you so proud.

Thanks Hilary~ It's always great to hear from you. I didn't realize your dad was a teacher... I know you are proud of all the lives he touched.

I will pass along the congrats!

I use to have a antique collectible shop in the art district of Winston Salem. All the shops there would display art from the students in Winston Salem schools. It was amazing! It takes a very special special person to be a teacher and I know you are very proud of your daughter. Hats off to her!

This is indeed an honor. She learned from the best. Nancy Carson was the best teacher that I ever had and also the best teacher that I ever had the pleasure of working with for almost 20years!!! The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. Thanks for all the inspiration that you have been in my life.

Peggy~ Thanks for stopping by with encouraging words. I will have to get Katherine to check out the possibility of putting her student art on display. Please come back and visit again.

Anita~ You made my day by stopping here today. I couldn't have done it without you... GIRL! You are such a blessing to me and I admire all of your hard work to get to where you are today- with your very own kindergarten class!
