Pats on the back sure do feel good!!!

So, today my co-teacher and I were called in to our supervisors office for a meeting.  It began as one of those "I just want to make sure we are all on the same page regarding. . . " sorts of meetings where you wonder why it's so important to be away from your kiddos for something like this.  Well. . . it ended up being a guise.  About 3 minutes into the meeting, the door burst open and in walks my principal, superintendent, sped director and all the coordinators in the program to announce that we (Sam and I) had been named the "employees of the month" for the district!!!  I haven't been more surprised ever in my life.  If you are a teacher, you know how special this is.  To say I am honored is an understatement.  It's rare we get pats on the back in this profession.  We get lots of great moments to hold onto, but it's a lonely field where often our job is misunderstood (all you do is babysit, right?).  It sure does feel good to be recognized!!!!!
 How cute is this cake??  Made by parent volunteers in our school parent center.
Anyway, just wanted to share this honor with you guys.  :)  I am on cloud 9 right now!!!!
