🎧 I know if I'm generous at heart I don't need recognition..... but I will accept this award because so many people have contributed to it. I have consistent support from family & friends. It comes down to applying what I've been taught & giving the energy to do so. Fortunately, I have a job that I genuinely love so it's usually highs, but even when I hit a low I have solid people in my life who help me bounce back. This award is for ALL of us 💯
Students will be the first to acknowledge the positive or negative impact an adult has on them. This recognition is new for me because I was chosen by our school admin. It's less about the funny moments out at lunch or after school and more about the moments that don't make the gram. The high-level work my students & I do on a daily basis when phones are put away.
For this I owe a lifetime of gratitude to a lady named Jackie Goldberg, my former advisor who could observe any teacher for 5 minutes & tell them 10 things they could've done better. She picked me apart every day for a year & taught me the importance of every single second spent in a classroom. Her criticism was the best support I could ever ask for. It'd be impossible to accept this award without acknowledging her impact on me.
And I love my momma too. My first teacher. Look at her smile up there 😄Your boys are doing alright! #MrCsIG
