As I was preparing for my ASCD breakout presentation tomorrow, I was looking for my video titled “Why I Teach.” ¬†While on my final Teacher of the Year trip in New York City, the Pearson Foundation sponsored a video made by each State Teacher of the Year titled “Why I Teach.” Making this video was an emotional experience, during filming one of the Pearson crew members asked me to share what I wanted my students to take with them when they left my classroom. I also talked about that special teacher that inspired me to teach, Mrs. Roberta Dutton-Morrill.

I just wanted to share my video and hope you go to the CCSSO website where my video is located to view all of the outstanding State Teachers of the Year for 2009.
