One of my students anonymously nominated me for the Disney American Teacher Award. I need to fill out the stuff etc. and go through the selection process. The top 30 go to L.A. next November each winning $10,000 plus $5,000 for their school. 10 finalists win an addition $5000. The one "Outstanding Teacher of the Year" receives $25,000 plus $10,000 for their school. That would pay for another cruise!!!!! (We must keep important things important). Anyway...wish me luck! I'm simply honored that one of my little darlings thought enough of me to submit the nomination. (smile)
That is wonderful! I'm glad someone appreciates our teachers. Good luck!

What a coincidence! I got the packet about a week ago telling me that I was nominated as well! My principla asked if I would put the $$$ back into my classsroom if I won? I said that money would pay for a few cruised and that I would be taking all my accumulated sick days!!
OF course, you are probably a FABULOUS teacher. I, on the eother hand, probably don't have a prayer of making it through the first cut. But it was nice that someone made the effort to nominate me in my old age!!
Congratulations - and good luck getting all your recommendation forms sent out, etc.
Maybe we will see you on TV getting the BIG BUCKS!!!
