CCE Teacher of the Year-Jill Kaelin

Teacher of the Year holds a special place in my heart.  Each year the faculty comes together to choose 1 teacher to represent the school in our county search for Teacher of the Year.  It is truly an honor and extremely humbling to be selected from your peers.  This year Cypress Creek Elementary chose Ms. Jill Kaelin as our Teacher of the Year.  Jill Kaelin teaches 4th grade and is the main organizer for that Write Night I blogged about a few weeks ago.  Jill created an after school writing club that will publish a book of kid's writing before the end of the year.  She is fabulous!  Jill uses creative ideas to include technology into her daily lessons.  Her passions include Twilight, reading, and technology.  Currently she is working on a novel and hopes to publish one day. I am so proud to call her a colleague.  Way to go!

This year my good buddy Liz Lilly and my sister in law Cassy Jurgensen were selected as Teacher of the Year for their schools. Make sure to check out their blogs, I linked them to their names. :) Liz was named a Top 5 Finalist for our County Teacher of the Year.  Here we are looking fabulous!  It was hard to choose 1 TOY they are all so fabulous!  We are so lucky to have them teaching our children.
