A Visit from the Union
This afternoon I had finished a lesson and they kids were working and many needed help from me. I was sitting at my desk and about five kids were in line waiting for my help. In walks a man that looked familiar. "Kelly?" he asked. Then he identified himself as one of the head honchos from our union. He had a YOU ROCK balloon and certificate in his hand. I was temporarily speechless. We shook hands and I finally stammered, "Wow, this is so nice of you!" He announced to my class, "Your teacher is a Teacher of the Year finalist for White Bear Lake." The kids began cheering. Again, I was speechless. It was so kind. I beamed the rest of the day.
