During March I'm participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge sponsored by the wonderful ladies from Two Writing Teachers blog. Today is 6/31. Thanks for stopping by for a slice.
Sometimes choosing which slice to share is too hard!!! In the spirit of not wanting to choose, I'm sharing two snippets of slices from one day:
This afternoon we bid farewell to the basketball team as they travel to Boise for the state tournament as the #1 seed. Three of the players are in my first period, so I'm sending winning vibes to Dylan, Jawan, and Maverick.

Jawan didn't forget to take a book for the road trip. He's reading The Crossover by Kwame Alexander.
A highlight of spring is the annual Teacher Appreciation Award banquet that has become a tradition of the Ninth Pocatello Stake from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Ann, who used to live down the street from me but who still lives in my neighborhood and whose beautiful daughter I taught last year, delivered the invitation. It is the coolest invitation I've ever seen.

This particular recognition means so much because graduating seniors choose a teacher to honor, and they may choose any teacher from their thirteen years of school. Also, the recognition is totally independent of the school district and simply reflects a desire to honor and recognize the teachers students identify as having had a positive impact on their lives. Do they know how much more value they give my life?
