Deep in the Heart of Texas

On Tuesday, I will be flying to where the “stars at night, are big and bright” to meet with the other State Teachers of the Year. I have been eagerly looking forward to the 2016 National Teacher of the Year Annual Convening in San Antonio since being named the State Teacher of the Year (STOY).

Throughout the week, we will be learning about education policy, best practices in education, integrating technology, storytelling, and media training. I am also excited about meeting my other fellow STOYs and gleaning ideas for enhancing my service as the Louisiana STOY. Opportunities to learn and grow will be abundant!

During the week, I’ll be sharing many of our activities on social media. You can check out the events on Twitter @KellyStomps or my Facebook: Kelly Stomps 2016 Louisiana State Teacher of the Year. Be on the lookout for #ntoy16!
