Life Lately

Here we are almost halfway through February.  Life has been so good.  Minus a few days here where Emma Girl has been sick.  January went by in a blur.  Max and Ian finish their basketball season.  Max played so good, and a game where he was on FIRE!  He scored 10 points that game.  Ian was out of town on business, and was so bummed his missed it.  All in all I would say their season was a great one! Now we are full swing into baseball...for the next 3 months.


At the end of January my school nominates teachers for Teacher of the Year.  I was surprised and so excited to be nominated by a fellow colleague.  It's anonymous, so I don't know who nominated me, but I'm so thankful to her.  After the nomination, everyone votes for their top 3.  On the 26th, I found out that I was a finalist!  A week later I was observed by 8 adults and went through an interview. After that day my team surprised me with an edible bouquet.  To say I work with the best team at my school is an understatement. 

On February 6, 2018 I found out that I had won Teacher of the Year!!  I was a hot mess of tears, and after hugging my principal and assistant principal, I turn around and there was Ian. All the tears.  I pretty much cried all that morning, because I was so happy.  Our admin team really pulled out all the stops for the celebration.  There was a marching band to welcome us, Waffle House catered, after being presented they let us know we had the day off! Then my sweet students came in holding yellow roses and Max was the last one to give me one.  All the tears...again. 

That same day our sweet Emma started tball!  She is the only girl on her team, and her pink glove was a huge hit with the moms! Emma did so great, and I'm so excited to watch her play!

Expect more baseball and tball pictures to fill the blog.  Happy Monday!
