Kunz is awarded
Teacher of the Year 2005
on my picture (above) to read the newspaper article from the Trenton Times!
all started when I was nominated for the
YMCA's Teacher of the Year Program by one of my
student's families and the secretary of our school! The
letters that they wrote about me were breathtaking and
made me feel so special! I sent my application in to the
Princeton YMCA among teachers from five
other neighboring districts! I figured that I didn't
really stand a chance among all of those applicants, but
go figure, one day I got a phone call and was told that
I was the Princeton YMCA's Teacher of the Year Runner
Up! There was one grand prize winner and two runners up
out of all the teachers who applied!
you can believe it, things got even better! One day, I
was teaching in my classroom when all of a sudden, there
was an entourage of teachers, parents, and Princeton
YMCA employees that came to my room with balloons, a
prize basket, and a cake with my name on it! It was a
surprise party for me! I was shocked! As if the title
and surprise party weren't enough, I was awarded the
check for $750, a trophy, a scanner, an IPOD, a DVD
player, a gift certificate to a hair salon, dinner for
two, membership to the Princeton YMCA, $100 in gas
cards, and $100 to Barnes and Noble! WOW!!!
Below, are some pictures from that special day that I'd
love to share with you!
Here I am with the special cake that had my name on it for Teacher of the Year!
