Just, Oh My Gosh

Last night I got to take pictures with the superintendent and was interviewed for the newspaper!  Okay, I'm too exhausted to write, so I'm going to snag some wall posts off my Facebook and let those do the talking. 

Shannon:  Went to my sister's "Teacher of the Year" ceremony, and she didn't just win for her school...she ended up winning "Teacher of the Year" for the WHOLE district! Way to go Jodi!!!!! That's my sis!!!!!!! 

James:  Congrats to Tammy and Jodi, our employees of the year for RMS. A special surprise for Jodi today, she is also the district secondary employee of the year. Amazing stuff and super excited for them both.

Giselle:  RMS has 4 employees of the year! How awesome is that! Nothing but the best at the Ranch! Congrats to all HUSD winners....especially Tammy, Jodi, Donna, and Chris!  Jodi was also district wide teacher of the year! Just an amazing teacher! Whoop whoop....RMS ROCKS!!!!

Teri:  Congratulations to my awesome daughter in law, Jodi, for getting HUSD's Teacher of the Year award!

Amanda:  Congratulations to my sister in law Jodi. She is RMS's Teacher of the Year AND The HUSD's Teacher of the Year! Way to go Jodi!

Bev:  Congratulations Teacher of the Year for our school and district!

Alli: I just saw- Congrats!!!! Woop! Woop!

Okay, that's probably enough of those.  I had to put some of them here, because frankly, they mean the world to me. Last night was probably one of the most emotional moments of my teaching career, and I want to be able to call it back to my mind anytime I'm having "one of those days."  But let me be clear that I DO NOT DESERVE THIS AWARD.  I'm absolutely stunned that I received it.  I'll talk about all that later on though when I'm actually more of whatever the opposite of a zombie is.  Hopefully I'll be able to procure some pics from my family to post too


  1. That was so great! What a wonderful night! We were SO unbelievably excited when they called your name for the district winner. SO freakin' awesome. (remind me to tell you sometime how our silly mother kept me laughing through the whole ceremony...she is such a nut!)

    1. I wish I could have sat with you guys Shan! I bet Mom was all sorts of hilarious. For me, everything was a blurry whirlwind, kind of like your wedding day. I have lots of flashes from that night, but my mind was sort of in another place after they called my name. I"m so glad I was able to share it with all of you. I have the BEST family.

  2. Woo hoo! Congrats, Jodi!
    I had a feeling you'd be trending somewhere ;)

    Can't wait to see all the pictures! :)

  3. Congrats, Jodi. I am so happy for you!! Its about time that the world acknowledges how awesome you really are. <3

  4. Good work, Jodi. That's really cool!
