Lone Peak High School's 2008-09 Teacher Awards are out and your favorite Deward and mine, my Sweetie, was voted Most Sincere Teacher by the student body! As reported in the school newspaper, an anonymous student was quoted as saying, "He just cares about all of his students, and when he compliments or thanks you, he is so sincere about it".
When he told me last night I said, "Well, that's quite an honor! That's really nice!" (He compliments and thanks me all of the time and I know he means it!)
He replied, "yeah, but I'd rather be Most Outstanding Teacher."
Hmm...coveting top honors are we? I asked him why.
"Because Most Outstanding Teacher gets a $200 prize from the P.T.A."
"Oh, really?" I asked. "What does Most Sincere Teacher get?"
He looked at me a gave me a cheesy grin.
Ahh...the adulation and appreciation you so richly deserve...who could ask for more?
