Today, I found out I was nominated for my school’s Teacher of the Year award. An hour later, I found out that I am not getting performance pay money because I missed a couple of the second-year-teacher trainings (which I would have gone to if I weren’t coaching for my school) . Oh, the great ironies of teaching.
PS. I’ve never been one to obsess about celebrities (I don’t even have a favorite singer or actor or anything) but I am one to obsess about Teach Like A Champion (HAVE YOU READ IT YET?). All I have to say is that Doug Lemov himself actually just commented on my blog, and I feel like I’ve died and gone to blogger heaven. Thanks, Teach For Us
