On March 23, I spent the day with the 2012 nominees for Maine's Teacher of the Year. What an impressive group of educators! They are devoted, creative, innovative and passionate! I loved hearing their TOY stories and viewing their displays.

During the Hall of Flags, guests, legislators and educators view the displays of the nominees.It is truly a celebration of education!
Thank you to Hannaford for making my journey as Maine's Teacher of the Year possible. I am so grateful for your support!
During the ceremony, I had the chance to visit with my dear friend LeeAnne Larsen.LeeAnne has been a mentor to me since my very first day of teaching in a portable classroom at the James H. Bean School.

Here are the 2012 nominees for Maine's Teacher of the Year!I am looking forward to visiting their classrooms and joining them on this amazing journey of reflection.
