The last day of post planning at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School had the entire faculty and staff gather to hear closing remarks. MVPS has had an incredible 2012-2013 school year and hearing about all of our achievements and successes was enjoyable and remarkable. Dr. Brett Jacobsen (@jbrettjacobsen) also traditionally gives two major awards to select faculty: Servant Leader and Innovator of the Year. I was not surprised at learning that among the four honorees for Servant Leader was my fabulous friend and Upper School tech teacher @treyboden and Lower School tech visionary @nicolemartin! They have done incredible things for the school. Then, when Dr. Jacobsen began announcing the Innovators of the Year and started to describe the work I have done this previous school year and announced my name, I was shocked and speechless!
I am BEYOND honored, completely surprised and incredibly grateful to be recognized as an Innovator of the Year at such an amazing school that is practically filled to the brim with innovative educators. Thank you to the leadership who considered me for this award and thank you to this school for supporting me in all my crazy ideas and experiments both in my classroom and in the educational community! I am proud to be working at #mvpschool.
