Giveaway Winner

Thank you all for entering my giveaway! I have another huge giveaway coming on February 1st with lots of other great bloggers. Congratulations to Ali, the lucky winner!

Ali--I will be emailing you about which resources that you want.

In other news, I was surprised today to learn that I won Teacher of the Year at my school. There are so many amazing teachers at my school that it's really an honor. The best part was when my principal announced it over the intercom this afternoon, most of my kiddos raced over to give me a hug. They were so excited. One of them said, "I know why you won. I think it's because you had some low kids and now they are doing great." Very insightful for an 8 year old. One of my sweeties even told me, "I love you anyway." That made me heart melt. 

Hope you have a good Friday! Today, we didn't have a break due to some testing going on in the school so our schedule was way off. I'm ready to get back to normal tomorrow.


  1. Congratulations on being TOY! It's a great feeling isn't it? I felt like a rock star when the kids would walk by and tell me congratulations. =)

  5. Congrats! That is definitely an honor and I know you are so proud. The year I won, I had the best little group of kiddos! They are 3rd graders this year at the school. I just remember it was on the day of the Fairy Tale Ball and I didn't even hear an announcement, one of my parents came flying in the door and was like congrats! I was like what are you talking about! LOL, it was funny...........the same year my sister won Assistant of the Year at our school so that was special! Sorry for being so long....just brought back some great memories!

  6. Congrats Ali!
