Yesterday I was hanging out with my 9th grade biology classes learning about organic chemistry when the phone rang. It was my assistant principal wanting to know what I was doing that day. So I said we were using play-doh to model lipids and she asked if she could drop by with a news crew. I thought she meant the one from our school announcements. Instead, she showed up with a crew from the Orlando WESH 2 news. They were doing a story about our school recently being rated as the best high school in the state. So I was on the news! My students were so excited! Go look, you can see me doing my teaching thing. Ryan is in there too, wearing an orange shirt and hanging out eating an apple with some girls at lunch.
So no sewing lately, but lots of good stuff is keeping me busy instead, so I will be thankful and enjoy every day.
Very cool! Teachers need some good PR! Glad the school year is off to a good start!
Congrats on the 15 min of fame. Nice to see education recognized. My SIL and BIL have been teachers in Leesburg, FL for 25+ years. The news spot is nice recognition.
Angela, that's fantastic!
Whoohoo and congrats!! It's always great to see education getting a boost. Good for you!
That's a great piece on your school, and you are obviously a top-notch teacher. Kudos to you,
Good for you! It's always great to hear about positive news about our schools and hard working teachers, instead of the negative things that often make the news. Here in SD our state testing data will be released to the public in 2 weeks and that will no doubt cause of flurry of negative stories instead of focusing on the amazing classrooms around the state.
Congratulations! I'm so proud of you! You work so hard and I'm happy to see that you have been recognized.
That was a great new story and you all did wonderful on camera. :)
How exciting for all of you to be a part of this fabulous school.
Great story--congratulations. If this is a public school, a great model to show that public schools need not fail. You (and your students) did a great job on camera for not having any real warning!
Congrats on becoming famous! It's always nice to see positive stories about teachers and schools.
congratulations! you should feel very proud of yourself. what an amazing environment the kids are allowed to learn in. night and day from the rigid classroom structure of the past. kudos to you!
How exciting! Congratulations! It's good to hear good things about teachers and schools instead of always the more negative aspects.
Very exciting. I watched the broadcast link you provided. Great that your local news pays tribute to good stuff and not all the bad stuff happening. Great teaching job too. Bravo!!
I knew there was something special about your dedication and involvement in not just the day to day classroom "stuff" but all the extra things you do for your students and professionally. The recognition is well deserved. Keep up the excellent work!
Congratulations on your 15 minutes of fame! How great is that to be recognized as the best school in the state! Students are lucky to have such a dedicated teacher.
Thankful for teachers like you who really care!!!
Congratulations! Thanks for sharing. That was exciting!
That's pretty cool. Congratulations. Sounds like a wonderful place to work and go to school.
Awesome Angela! And that's a style of learning the students can take with them through life.
How very, very exciting - I think I would have enjoyed science more in your classes than I did back in the 70s.
I loved the story! I detested biology and science in middle school...I think I'd have loved it if you were my teacher :) Don't even get me started on the horrible boring history teachers, lol..
How exciting! Yay for hands-on activities!
Ohhh Angela, I am so proud of you!
So fun to see you at work, and being famous!
Loved your science class snippet! So nice to see choice for students, collaboration and hands on, etc. I'm in my 2nd year of retirement but miss the kids every day.
AWESOME to see you in your element! Cool to be the top school in the state and to see more into your day! Thanks for sharing, WHOOT WHOOT!
