Today I had the great joy of speaking with the ladies of the Upsilon Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma.
The afternoon began with a most excellent performance from Lugoff-Elgin High schools percussion ensemble, lead by Glenn Price and his associate percussion teacher Mr Flowers. We were treated to two selections from their repertoire, this was incredible to see and hear. The confidence and dexterity with which these students performed was a real treat. This ensemble is one of eight ensembles chosen nationwide to perform at the upcoming festival in Indianapolis. I urge you to see one of their performances if you can! Thank you DKG for spotlighting one of our marvelous musical ensembles in the district at your meeting.
Mrs Karen Bullard, Principal of Lugoff-Elgin Middle School, made the invocation for the meeting, and Mrs Julie Putnam, current president of the chapter introduced me. It never ceases to amaze me how exciting it is to be introduced as district Teacher Of the Year. I was able to share the journey of becoming district TOY with the group of current and former educators, and to share my appreciation for being placed in the position of ‘teacher voice’ for all educators in Kershaw county during this year. We heard from Martha Horton, President Alpha Eta State, and it was wonderful to be in the company of such great educators.
My journey continues and it is thrilling every step of the way!
