Sorry to be gone so much lately! 🙂  I’ve had big things going on that I wasn’t able to post publicly, but now that the trip is over and done with, I can talk it up! 🙂

Last month, I found out I was chosen to represent Indiana as the 2014 Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science award recipient. I was selected as a K-6 Science awardee.  I got to travel to DC to meet up with the 200+ other awardees!

Here are a few pictures from my adventures:

I LOVED being able to meet teachers from all across the country and the rest of the Indiana “delegation”.  We got to tour the White House and we were each presented with a citation from the President. 🙂  Its been keeping my BUSY planning for my family to come with me, and 4 days of sub plans!


I’m trying to get caught up on blogging!  I’ve been so busy (and took some time off for Fall Break), so I thought I needed to get back to blogging.

On my first day back from Fall Break, I attended an awards luncheon for the PAEMST (Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching) Award Finalists.  I was named one of six finalists for the state of Indiana.  I am now waiting to see if I am chosen as the state winner for Science, but I probably won’t know until May next year.  Here are a couple of pictures from the luncheon.



This is my husband with me.  He’s way taller than me, so I had to stand up a few steps to kind of be as tall as him!

This is me with the other five finalists.  The three science finalists are on the left and the math finalists are on the right.

I’m excited and humbled to be presented with this honor and there are so many people who have helped to get me to where I am as a teacher today and for them, I am very grateful!
