A Pleasant Surprise: 2018 NCTE High School Teacher of Excellence

We all know that Mondays can be the toughest day of the week. When you start a new job, a Monday comes with new, previously unknown challenges. That said, yesterday was not a daunting day, but I did come home rather tired. I got a nice boost of energy when a surprise email popped into my mailbox at 4:09PM. Here’s a snapshot:

NCTE

I honestly, truly was not expecting to see this, but I am over the moon. I was selected as one of the fourteen educators to be recognized by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) as a 2018 Teacher of Excellence. NCTE is an organization that I respect, love, and admire. I deeply appreciate the Georgia Council of Teachers of English (GCTE) nominating me for the national recognition after winning their Teacher of the Year award this past February.

Forgive me for indulging in posting this on the blog, but as one might imagine, I’m pretty stinking excited. Thank you to the many, many, many friends, family, and colleagues who are very much a part of this recognition. This simply does not happen without you!
