My grandfather’s first cousin Mary sent me an e-mail today informing me that her niece Karen Crow was selected as the NFL Teacher of the Year based on essay written by her student Devan M., who landed in her school after fleeing Katrina. Devan’s essay was one of 5,000 submissions. Karen is the principal of A.G. Elder Elementary School in Joshua, Texas.
Mary said Karen and her family were having a great time in Hawaii, where she will be recognized (we think) during the NFL Pro Bowl game tonight. Watch out for that.
