I found out today I’m one of the award recipients of the Children’s Tylenol/Terri Lynne Lokoff National Childcare Teacher Awards! Big award ceremony in Philadelphia on May 15 all expense paid. They will decide by the end of the week but I’m sure that the big ceremony and trip won’t be able to happen because of the virus. I’m disappointed about that but happy that I will be able to fund my project “Spread Kindness Like Confetti - teaching children about kindness and empathy in a crazy mixed up world “ as well as receiving a cash award for my personal use.
