100 + Follower Giveaway

It is time to reveal my giveaway to celebrate 100 Followers!  First let me give you a little history as to why I chose this as the prize.

I am very involved in a Character Education Grant for my district and have been for the past 4 years.  I have learned so much from participating in this grant and have also earned the privilege of introducing state of the art teaching ideas and materials to my students as a part of the grant.  Through this, I have had the absolute honor of meeting Marilyn Perlman, not once, not twice, but 3 times.  She is a master teacher in regards to service learning and character education. She spearheaded the OCHO Project for  service learning, which you can check out below.  

I have 2 copies of her daughter's life changing story "The Biggest and Brightest Light" and would love to share one with a special follower out there.  Please  click below to find out about this story.

  1. What a great idea! My co-teacher has a program she uses to add character education into our routines. A fellow teacher was grading papers while in the waiting room at a doctor's office. Someone witnessed that and wanted to say thanks for all we as teacher's do even on our own time. We had a meeting and to our surprise a community member came in and shared that doctor's office story with the rest of us. He gave that teacher a "week at his beach house" as a Thank you....

    It shows me that you never know how something we say/do can affect others.

  3. My middle daugther has such a kind heart. This easter she participated in an egg hunt where she found the golden egg and a 5 dollar bill. When we got home and were putting it in her give, save, spend envelopes, she told me to put the entire thing in the give envelope because it would help more people that way. Good job girl! Such a kind thing to do.

  4. Beth: A beach house vacation!!! What an amazing way to pay it forward, I love hearing these type of stories involving strangers, God is good.

    Sarah, Don't you just love it when kindness radiates from our children. This is when we know that our examples are being witnessed.

    Thank you for sharing. Good Luck!


Show me some love.......
