Teacher of the Year

So a pretty amazing thing (or bunch of things) has happened in my life over the past year. I was voted Teacher of the Year at Columbia High School and then went on to be named Columbia County Teacher of the Year. Pretty fantastic for this engineer-turned-teacher to be given this honor among a group of wonderful educational professionals.

This summer I joined the other Florida District Teachers of the Year for an amazing three days in Orlando for the Macy's Florida Teacher of the Year event. It was a very inspiring few days that left me energized for my future in teaching. I was also fortunate enough to be selected for one of the special recognition awards. You can read more about my Champion of Children Award here.

There are so many things I want to write about all of this and I'm hoping to add more later. I know I don't blog much anymore but with teaching, our family business, and my three kids ... there just isn't enough time in the day.
