What a handsome devil!
Today is a big day for John...as some of you know, he recently won a teaching excellence award within his school district.
A pretty big deal.
I(we) am proud of him and feel he deserves the recognition.
He has been teaching full time at his school for 11 years (or so) and pours a tremendous amount of time and energy into the kids and community there. He runs a club, plays hoop at lunchtime with the kids, facilitates the yearbook, teaches photography and his ping pong table is a big draw to hang out and far too many little things to list.
John is not one for attention but I thought it blog worthy today.
Tonight, we are off to a fancy schmancy dinner/auction fundraiser in his honor, as well as the four other teachers and several high school students scholarship winners.
A grand affair for us humble folk...we so rarely get dressed up and leave the kids at home.
I am channelling Audrey Hepburn today with a sleek black dress and the whole bit.
Perhaps there will be photos taken...perhaps.
