I love to collaborate with other teachers. I have enjoyed the creativity and spontaneity of those I have worked with during the course of this year. I thank the leadership of the academy for this award--no, no, I mean for its hard work in preparing and presenting good materials for use in the classroom. It has been an enriching experience for my students and for me.
I appreciate the creative learning strategies I have acquired, especially the monsters project, mind mapping, a map of home, and now--ta da--blogging. I will use the workshop "bible" full of good stuff, as a reference when I am looking for a new way to approach a lesson.
