Award Season!

Friends~It has been award season in the Schroeder House.  I am not bragging but I am.  On Sunday, I had the privilege of watching my daughter and fellow teachers & students accepting their Young Author awards.  It was such an amazing moment. I don't have Lily's writing home tonight because I brought it to school to share with my students but I promise to add it tomorrow.  I am so very proud of her.  Check out my baby girl on the stage! That is her...2nd from the left.  The rest are students and teachers from my school.  We filled the stage!

This is her best buddy Marley who won from another 
school in the district.  Marley has won 4 years in a row!

The story goes on!  Tonight I had the honor of accepting the Hilbish Ford Teacher of the Month Award.  When I came back from spring break I had an email from Hilbish.  One of my sweet parents (Mrs. Cramer) nominated me and I won!  Check me out below:)
Sorry about the basket of clothes...I just got home!  The best part is Hilbish Ford donated $ to my classroom.  I can't wait to go shopping.  I have lots of goodies in mind for my kiddos!  

These 2 awards show the power of the written word.  Lily won with her own words and I won because of someone else's.
A special thank you to Sarah and her family.  Thank you so very much for taking the time to nominate me!
It is an honor I won't forget!
