Teacher Awards for Literacy – I won one!

Posted in 2015-2016 school year with tags , , , , , on October 26, 2015 by Christopher Pearce

I received some genuinely cool news a few weeks ago that I wanted to share with y’all – I recently found out I am one of three winners of Penguin/Random House’s Teacher Awards for Literacy! I’m going to get to build a program to teach using graphic novels in my classroom with some of the monies from the award and I get to go to the National Council of Teachers of English convention this November in Minneapolis!

So, I nominated myself for this award and I drew a comic to go along with my application. I thought I’d put it up for y’all to check out.

I’m sure I’ll talk more about the award and what it means to me in upcoming weeks but for now… Woohoo!
