An incredible honor and a request from you, my #PLN!

I am excited to write this post and share some amazing news. My Associate Principal, +Anne Schaefer-Salinas (@apannie7),Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 8.40.57 PM nominated me for the Comcast All Star Teacher Award and I have been chosen as one of the top 5 finalists! It is an honor to be included in such an incredible group of educators who are clearly dedicated to their students and passionate about education.

The next step is to compete with the other finalists for the grand prize, which is $20,000 for my school Notre Dame High School in Belmont! I couldn’t be more thrilled by this opportunity.

Now I need help from my amazing #PLN to spread the word.

The winner will be announced on July 8 at AT&T Park prior to the Giants/Mets game, and the winning teacher’s school will be awarded $20,000! 


For the past 17 years I have been blessed to be part of the Notre Dame community. I love working with our amazing, creative, and inquisitive students. My students, school community, and #PLN encourage and push me to design learning opportunities that are engaging and challenging. Working with such a supportive community has brought out my best, which is why I am being considered as an All Star Teacher. Together as a team we can hit a home run and win $20,000!
