2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

WALKING IN MY DREAM...

...last week I posted insight about my job, my program and the young people that I teach in response to a fellow bloggers inquiry.  In my opinion, I am walking in my dream. This week I was surprised by being named Dual Enrollment Instructor of the Year (now get this...) of the State of Georgia (the whole State).  This award was made by the Technical College System of Georgia.  I've been in a daze every since I heard my name called as winner!

 I received the award on Wednesday in Atlanta.  That's my supervisor, principal, and high school coordinator in the picture with me.  I'm telling you, having such an amazing support system is a God Send.  I would not be able to do my job as well without the help of each one of them.  I received surprise visits from our College President and Vice-President this week; along with numerous emails, phone calls and flowers.  If their goal was to make me feel special - believe me they did succeed!

To God be the glory!  Now I ask His help in continuing to do the things that earned me this award...
