British Petroleum is to be commended for promoting a teacher recognition program for Alaska school districts, and the awards received from them, because of you, are a highlight in my teaching career of 23 years. I feel honored having received this distinction, knowing several teachers, my co-workers that I regard with very high esteem, who are just as, if not more so, deserving of this award.
Recognition programs, such as this, really make a teacher feel appreciated. I would like to encourage parents and students to take time this year to nominate the teacher of their choice for this distinction. Send a message to your favorite teacher that is guaranteed to brighten their day.
