I was surprisingly given a very prestigious award at the end of the school year on behalf of the 6th grade students...
Most Stylish Teacher
Who needs to be Teacher of the Year or Best Teacher when you can be voted Most Stylish? All those years learning to be a teacher really paid off!
Okay, I'll be honest...I was totally excited! My students were really proud of me, it was sweet actually (even the rough-around-the-edges students were excited for me). It was also a great way to end the school year on a celebratory note with my students. I'll have them again next year as 7th graders, so I guess I should be refining "my style" this summer for the '08-'09 school year!
