The End of an Era

Tonight, my fabulous cousin Beth passed on her title as PISD Elementary Teacher of the Year to someone new. Plano ISD hosts a Gala each year in honor of the Teacher of the Year. This time last year, several members of my family attended the Gala and were there when they announced Beth as Elementary Teacher of the Year for 2007. What an amazing accomplishment that was for her in her short, but very well established, career as an educator. It was such an exciting night! We attended the Gala again this year to watch Beth give a speech and be there to congratulate the new TOTY. Obviously, the night wasn't the same as last year but it just reminded me how very proud I am of Beth and all of her success as a teacher. I can only hope that Christopher and Lucy will get at least one teacher who is half as good as she is.

Congratulations Beth, on completing a year with such an amazing honor. I can't wait to see where you go from here. Your students are so lucky to have you in their lives and so am I!! I love you and am so proud of you!
