International Reading Association Award
This award "recognizes an outstanding elementary classroom teacher of reading/language arts. It honors Eleanor M. Johnson, founder and editor-in-chief of Weekly Reader, who died in 1987. The award includes a monetary prize of US$1,000 supported by a grant from Weekly Reader Corporation".
The award will be officially announced on Monday, April 30 at the First General Session at the Annual Convention in Chicago.
I am pretty psyched and thankful to my Principal Dave, AUSSIE Literacy Consultant Lisa, coteacher Lauren and my student's parents for their beautiful nomination letters of support.
It looks like I am going to Chicago!
