Jones Elementary School, one of the schools that I regularly visit for my outreach during the year, nominated our little team for an award for “Exemplary Reading Initiative” and we won! It was a pleasant surprise to find out Monday morning, even more pleasant to find out I could crash the awards dinner and get free steak!
Seriously though, I felt really honored that they thought of me as such an important part of their teaching. We’ve been doing programs together for the last few years and they were one of the schools that helped out with my Harry Potter Night last year. They really care about their students and it shows.
Always nice to get these little reminders that you’re appreciated for your efforts. Especially since I will be doing a crazy amount of Summer Reading outreach over the next few weeks.
Thank you to Jones Elementary School and the Anne Arundel County Reading Council. You definitely made my week!
