Congratulations to our Valley View 2014 Teacher of the Year,
3rd Grade Teacher
Read on for the unusual and heartwarming story....
Our Teacher of the Year announcement came at the end of our regular Friday Assembly in which a few students from every grade received special recognition and awards; and which all of the students and many parents and grandparents attended.
At the back of the room was a proud grandmother, retired teacher, who was there to see her 1st Grade grandson.
After thanking some wonderful people for her Teacher of the Year Recognition, Julie asked us to allow her to introduce someone special to the group.
She went on to tell the the audience that her Third Grade teacher was the one who inspired her to become a teacher.
Neither Julie nor Mrs.Vescovo know she would be receiving this recognition today.
But how fitting and wonderful was it that Mrs. Vescovo, her third grade teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary, now retired, was in the audience today to see her grandson receive an award!!
Through tears, Julie's and all of ours, she called Mrs. Vescovo to the stage to share this award with her.
Sometimes wonderful things happen....
