While walking into my classroom this morning, I began to sing, “It’s the final countdown.” I have just six days left before I head to Washington D.C. to be recognized along with my fellow State Teachers of the Year. Along with getting ready for this epic trip, these six days are jam-packed with activity.
For the next four days, I will be administering the LEAP test to five students that have testing accommodations based on their Individualized Education Program (IEP). After testing is completed each day, the enrichment teachers will be working to give each grade level a longer recess. On Friday, I will be heading to the Louisiana Department of Education for the second meeting of the Music Education Task Force. This meeting is extremely important as we will be discussing our priority goals for our recommendations to the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Then, I will be attending a meeting for the Tulane Alumni Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi on Saturday. During this meeting, new members will be initiated into the chapter.
On Sunday, I will begin the adventure of a lifetime. Be sure to follow my adventure on Twitter @KellyStomps and on Facebook: Kelly Stomps 2016 Louisiana State Teacher of the Year!
