Every month at our school, a teacher or staff member is chosen to be "Teacher of the Month". We nominate each other based on our district's 5 goals. I can recite them from memory, but won't bore you with the details. =) When our principal called us all down to the lobby for a short little impromptu meeting one morning in early December, we didn't think much of it. Since Mr. D. started at our school in September, we've had a few of them. He started the meeting saying that he didn't really want to wait until his next "official" staff meeting to announce December's teacher of the month since it was a relatively short month. Once he started talking about the teacher of the month and describing the different things that the teacher has done to earn this award and help our school, I thought to myself, "hmmm... I've done that too, or my sister did that a few weeks ago". To our very excited and extremely humbled surprise, WE, The Sister Teachers, were chosen as Co-Teachers of the Month of December!! We were so happy and honored to be chosen by such an amazing staff!! We're just a small representation of the talent in our school. A few years ago, our former Principal, Dr. B. started the tradition of giving the Teacher of the Month a huge rock with our mascot (Casey the Dragon) on it. The rock is now known as "Casey Rocks!!". Each month we pass the rock along to its newest recipient. Here's a pic of Danielle and I with our "Casey Rocks!!". It was kind of hard to get a self pic with the rock since it was pretty heavy, but it's not too bad. We have to give our rock up tomorrow, so we wanted to share it with you tonight!
