And then we pull into the gym parking lot. (<-- I crack myself up sometimes.)
Today, though, I'm gonna do something completely out of character and brag on my sister.
Every October 4th, Office Max bestows A Day Made Better Awards on teachers across the nation. The secretary at Nebalee's school nominated her for the award with the following:
Nebalee has been at our school for several years. She is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who continually looks for creative ways to help students and staff achieve to their highest potential. Nebalee holds a Type D Adminstrators License and did her internship at Eagle Crest. Nebalee takes the time to get to know each of her students facilitate their individual learning style and time line. She is the first to volunteer to spearhead any new initiatives. Her professionalism speaks for itself, she always conducts herself in a professional manner with students, staff and parents. Her students find in her a loving and compassionate teacher who always looks to their best interest. Nebalee has taught in several grade levels at our school and she is undertaking the challenges of a new kindergarten classroom this year. Please consider her for this A Day Made Better Award.
Apparently, the people she works with think she's pretty incredible and the people at Office Max agreed. Nebalee had no idea that she'd been nominated, or chosen, until they showed up in her classroom toting two large boxes...
|Two of these boxes full of supplies for her classroom!|
|A peek inside one of the boxes|
|A new office chair!|
When she got home from work that day, she drove into her driveway to find this...
|Guess Nebalee's not the only one excited about this cool award.|
