Totally Dumbstruck....

I was served a great big serving of humility today.... I was honored today, totally unexpectedly: I was honored as our school's "teacher of the year." In a school of 2100, with a staff of 130...it's something I'd never seriously thought about (despite a runner-up finish in a different sort of statewide competition a few years back--one base more on scholarship; this award is totally different...voted on by teachers, staff, parents, and students.)



I honestly don't mean this to toot my own horn, because I was honestly dumbstruck. In case you hadn't noticed, I have a penchant for ruffling feathers and speaking my mind, which inevitably leads to ticking some folks off....

Honestly, this is the kind thing I never really expected. To me, it's "political" enough and enough of a popularity contest of sorts....that a loose-cannon like me isn't going to be among the first to be considered. Anyway, I was really surprised.

But tonight, I'll have to hoist a few in celebration. Have a good weekend folks.

Obviously, Taco John was right. It's a shame that a government teacher such as yourself knows nothing about government.

In fact, you know so little you were awarded teacher of the year.

Thanks for the expressions of support.

I'm still pretty suprised, given that I'm one who tends to rock the boat. But I'll take it.

It is always nice to have positive feedback on the job you do. It doesn't get much more positive than that!

Grats, teach!

I think we're all pretty dumbstruck.

But you know, once you've been there long enough, you're pretty much obligated to get it.



Nice job, Mr. Kotter.

But I don't think "humility" is what you got today. Humility is like when I look down at a paper I had written for a class and it says C- on it and then I realize I'm not so smart after all.
