It's an honor just to be nominated.....RIGHT?!?!?!?!

I'm a bit bummed.  I was nominated by the state to represent TN for the Praxis test/score setting.  I had filled out an application after being nominated, but had high hopes of being selected.  Well, I just found out today that I was not selected.  Praxis only picked two teachers from TN to go.  I'm totally pouting right now...I KNOW...drama drama drama...and I am a big baby!!! :) ha ha  I just thought it would be sooooooo much fun to hang out with teachers from around the country and talk about what makes a good art teacher & what knowledge is most important for art teachers.  I'll get over it...but it is NOT an honor just to be nominated....
I WANTED THE PRIZE!!!!! ha ha 


  1. The only consolation is I have for you is that. . . everything happens for a reason? And the other thing I always tell myself is "they have no idea what they are missing."

    By the way, They have no idea what they are missing.

  2. sorry. Maybe next time???

  3. "what she said" (ditto Erica's comment)

  4. I'm so sorry Mr. E...not to take away from that, but I love your chandeliers. Could you explain how you connected them?



  5. Praxis is the devil. I think it's ridiculous that scores vary from state to state. you miss it by one or 2 points and you could be job less..bleeecckkk
