My Teacher of the Year Joy! - Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas!

My Teacher of the Year Joy!

One of My Signs ~ Now In My Classroom!
I love my school! I love my team!  I've been pretty low-key about being Teacher of the Year, but last Friday had me in tears! Happy Tears! My team had the third graders write a book to give to me about being Teacher of the Year.
Each child came to the front and read their pages to me, I was laughing, smiling, crying...I was a great big mess! It was wonderful! They were laughing with me and cracking up that some of the pages were so moving that I was crying and laughing at the same time! :)
My team gave me flowers from the students.
It was wonderful!
My school has also made me feel so appreciated...
The district had a wonderful evening of recognition for all the teachers...
That's Me and Mrs. Stokes, our Support Staff winner.
When we stood up our school went wild! It was amazing, they had signs PFA had made and they were screaming and yelling! I love my friends and my family! It was great!

It is silly, but my favorite part is my parking spot! :)
