Giving Back to the People Who Always Give So Much!
Today is National Teacher Appreciation Day and to help out our amazing teachers, a few of your favorite retailers are offering some terrific deals!
Before we get to the sales, I wanted to offer a special congratulations to our Celebrate Teachers Winner, Mr. Jamie Barnhill of Forest View Elementary in Durham.
He’s the winner of a Southpoint $500 Shop Etc. gift card for being a top notch teacher!
The winning essay was submitted by one of his kindergarten students (pictured with Mr. Barnhill above) with the help of her mom:
“Mr. Barnhill is, hands down, the best Kindergarten teacher ever! He genuinely loves each and every one of the kids that he teaches. He makes sure that every child is engaged and included in every lesson. Mr. B (as he is known) uses nature and animals to drive lessons home. His passion for learning and making every moment count make him the best teacher for kids just starting to learn.”
Congrats to ALL OF the Teacher Finalists:
Kathleen Snapp (Green Hope High School)
Ernetta Cagle (Phillips Middle School)
Audrey Pinion (Spring Valley Elementary School)
Susan Brooks (Cameron Park Elementary School)
Brian OKeefe (Jordan High School)
Mr. Anderson (Granville Central High School)
Pam Webb (Frank Porter Graham)
Anna L. Sanders (Y. E. Smith Elementary School)
Casey Eviston (Clover Garden Charter School)
CONGRATULATIONS TO MR. BARNHILL!
