A Note from Theresa Schrager:
As an educator, the NCL Giving Joy Contest 2022 impacted me in many positive ways. Having been an educator for 35 years, this contest showed me that there are corporations that appreciate education and wish to acknowledge the hard work that the teachers put in daily. The gifts and prize money for my classes and myself was absolutely a dream that I am so appreciative of. I still pinch myself that it really happened. Additionally, this contest made me realize how many students’ lives I have touched when the voting took place because I received many notes thanking me for being a supportive teacher from students over my vast career in Broward County. Furthermore, I networked with many teachers from all over the United States and Canada which was truly an enlightening experience. Without a doubt, winning second place was absolutely an awesome experience.
