My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

My Accomplishments

I've been overwhelmed lately with my accomplishments. In February, South Carolina Council for Exceptional Children named me Member of the Year and so, Tuesday night, my school district recognized me for winning the award. (They recognized all award winners for the year). Plus I was chosen Teacher of the Year for my school and also named one of the Top 10 finalists for District Teacher of the Year. After being interviewed, observed, and videotaped, the judges will choose a winner who will be announced in August. I have also been interviewed by the newspaper (anyone interested can read the article at http://www.tribunetimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060503/TRIBUNETIMES01/605030330/1145). I am truly honored by all these awards and I'm amazed that people think I'm worthy of them.
