I was declared teacher of the week this morning on the morning announcements! I think it will also be announced at tonight’s football game. There is a box in the main office at school, and you can put in nominations for teacher of the week or student of the week. You fill out a form with your name, the name of your nominee, and why you nominate them.
Two students told me they nominated me. I was commended on my spirit and creativity…in other words, my spirit week costumes. It was nice to be honored. No prize, though, just the announcement. That’s OK, I treated myself to a “blood orange margarita” at dinner at Bertucci’s tonight. Not a real margarita, but tasty and definitely alcoholic. A reward for all the hard work grading I did this week. I put in a lot of hours, and ignored other things…and this weekend I will need to put in the hours on other things. Starting with the several days’ worth of dishes that haven’t gotten washed.
Ah well. I win! And I get to wash dishes!
