Last weekend I attended my state's annual art education conference. I enjoyed catching up with friends I only get to see once a year and attended some great workshops! At the conference awards banquet, I was honored to accept the 2014-2015 KAEA Outstanding Elementary Art Educator of the Year award.
|I'm bring awkward back...|
My nominator wasn't able to attend so one of the KAEA Co-Presidents presented the award. You know how kids sometimes accidentally say "Amen" after the Pledge of Allegiance? Well, I almost said it after my thank you speech...
Here is a group photo of all but one of the award winners. We didn't catch the Art Enhancer in time and he had already left. Pictured from left to right are:
