Rockin' Apple

On Monday morning I received a phonecall in my classroom from a local radio dj telling me that I had been selected for this month's "Rockin Apple Award". Each month they select a teacher in Northeast Arkansas to spotlight. Students and parents can nominate and they pick a teacher from those nominations. This month I had a parent write in an email for me that got selected. I was completely blown away, shocked, humbled, etc. This afternoon the radio guys and reps fom Best Buy came to our classroom for a big party. They brought pizza, a giant cookie cake, sodas and tons of prizes. The kiddos were so excited! They devoured the pizza and got to play guess the celebrity for tshirts. Each kid got a tshirt and autographed redwolves football! I received a brand new Kodak digital camera from Best Buy, a tshirt, passes for bowling and the movies, a framed certificate, an apple trophy, etc. It was such an amazing experience and I am blown away by the generosity of the radio station as well as the local businesses!
