A Day Made Better

A Day Made Better

Sponsored by Office Max

What a surprise this morning at school! Little did I know that the assembly called for fifth and sixth grade teachers was to award me with this fabulous cart of goodies ( and the leather chair I am sitting on)! Our office manager, Sharon Prochello, had nominated me to receive over $1,200 in classroom supplies provided by Office Max in their A Day Made Better promotion in conjunction with Adopt-A-Classroom. 1,000 teachers were surprised at the same time all across the country. What a feat that must have been!

I am rarely surprised by anything, but they certainly kept this news under wraps until this morning. I felt like a celebrity and my students enjoyed the recognition as well. I am truly grateful for Sharon's faith in me as an educator. This is a great award because I get to share with my students.

Thank you to Office Max, Sharon, Marilee Timbrooks (our fantastic principal), and to my studen ts. What a day!!
