What I got instead, though, was a whole bunch of this:
Not exactly what I was looking for. I didn't even get a good dinner. Instead, I stopped at the local Subway with a colleague on my way to a board meeting. I had my camera with me, and thought about taking a picture. That, my friends, would be sad. You ALL know what Subway looks like.
However, I did get to see several staff members from our district receive prestigious awards. I'm very proud of what our school district does for kids. While I honestly don't get excited about the thought a meeting after a long day of work, it's always energizing to be reminded of all the good things we're doing and the commitment so many have to making the future brighter for children.
