Teacher Appreciation Week

I'm lucky enough to serve on the Board of Trustees of the Loudoun Education Foundation. Every year the Foundation hosts the Outstanding Teachers Banquet to honor all the teachers that were nominated for the Washington Post Teacher of the Year award in Loudoun County along with the winner of the Principal of the Year from Loudoun County. This year it was my pleasure to serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the event for the second time. This mostly consists of keeping the program moving and announcing the names of all the honorees. It also includes giving a brief speech on why the event is important and why teachers are important. I thought I'd share my speech with all of you. Maybe my words will inspire you to donate to this worthy cause. Or, maybe you will feel bad for me and still give them a few bucks.

These Boots were made for Walking: Boston Edition

Avon 39 is an amazing event to support breast cancer awareness, research, and support for those women and men living with and battling the disease. Rizzo started walking in the event nine years ago in Washington, DC to honor her Aunt who passed away from breast cancer but also to honor her Mom who lost a battle to cancer. After that first walk in Washington DC, Rizzo decided to walk in a different city each year to complete every city offered by Avon.
