Last week was amazing. We were very excited about the field trip to NYC that was scheduled for Friday. Even though the trip was fantastic, it ended being the icing on the cake for me last week. On Wednesday I was called into the principal's office where he was able to play a quick joke on me before extending his hand and saying "Congratulations Terry, your students voted you the ARL's Teacher of the Year". I was absolutely shocked and excited.
For those who do not know much about the ARL, we have an absolutely amazing group of very talented and dedicated instructors. I was so honored to be selected the Teacher of the Year from this amazing group. On Thursday I along with the other teachers from around the county were invited to a very nice lunch and award ceremony where I was surprised by four of my students joining us. In addition under a very short deadline our media specialist was able to interview three of my students and develop a very well put together video that was played at the luncheon. I was very touched by the kind words that my students had to say about me. All in all, a very nice gesture from all.
A special shout-out to Anastasiya, Chris, Haley, Israel, Kira, Myles, and Morgan. Thank you for the kind words, means more than you know.
Mr. Terry Walker
