I dressed up on Friday

10 Jan

Usually at school, Friday is the day when I dress casual.  I look forward to wearing jeans and not feeling bad about it. 

But this Friday I dressed up.  Jack O’Connell, the superintendent of California, came to my classroom.  Yes.  California.

He actually came to visit because one of the amazing teachers at my school was recognized as the State Teacher of the Year for California.  Not only has it been a great opportunity for her, but our school is also getting some notoriety because of it.  (Which, looks good, especially because schools who have been in Program Improvement for 4 years tend to get a bad rap).

Anyway, since the State Superintendent was visiting our school, my principal said he wanted to bring him into my class.  I gladly said yes.  God really has given me favor at my job and I am so thankful.  The simple fact that when my boss wanted to show off our school, he thought to bring the Superintendent to my classroom (and a few others) was pretty cool. 

I usually don’t get nervous when people come into my classroom, but I was shaking inside a bit for this one.  There were cameras!  I could tell my students got a little nervous too but were excited. 

When they left, one of my students said “those guys were scary.”  In a way, I think I agreed with him a little bit. 

Good scary.

    Becca, that is SO cool! God has given you a great talent of teaching. You are an amazing teacher and Mr. C knows that! I learned a lot about how to be a teacher watching you teach. Love you!!

    What an opportunity! I would have loved to be a fly on the wall watching the whole thing. May God’s favor continue as you pour out your life and the light of Jesus to your students and co-workers.
