Sure. Why not?
So after my AP has already done a walk through for a PDAS eval., she returns this afternoon and I'm wondering what the heck is going on. She informs me that I've been nominated for ?Teacher of the Year. I proceeded to laugh out loud. I actually laughed at her. I think of myself as a good teacher but I am in no way qualified to represent my school and move on to interviews with district personnel. There's TONS of paperwork to do and it doesn't seem like fun at all. Well, after she tells me that you have to be nominated by at least two people to be considered, she says, "So do you want to have your name on the ballot?" All I'm thinking is that there is no way I'd ever win this thing and I have teachers on my team (who apparently weren't nominated- maybe I should have remembered to do that, oops) who deserve this award ten times before myself. But out of my mouth comes, "Sure. Why not?" Now the problem is going to be if pigs learn to fly and I actually win this thing.
