Day Two – High-Five Yourself
Consider your proudest moment. What was it and how did you feel?
I had been nominated quite a few times for school system teaching awards, but never had gone on to win. In 2002, I had once again been nominated for our middle school and was attending the banquet for the system-wide awards.
They introduced the award winners with a description of what they had done in their classrooms and within the first few lines, I realized they were talking about me.
I was very proud and was awarded a cash prize and a plaque, which I still proudly display on my wall. It would be the only system-wide award I would win, which made it even more special.
