An art teacher at our school won a radio trivia contest (94.7 Fresh in the DC area) and when they heard he was a teacher, they offered to treat the staff to cupcakes, Georgetown Cupcakes. That was exciting! Cupcakes?!?! Georgetown Cupcakes on a Monday…heavenly!
As I walked into the staff lunchroom, I realized that the people who brought the cupcakes are the people who are on the morning show on 94.7, The Tommy Show. I started talking to them about our amazing news show and the hard-working students who create it every day. Bragging. Yes, I was bragging about my middle schoolers!
Their faces lit up! They had so many questions. We chatted for awhile and then Tommy asked if I’d like to answer a couple of questions. He interviewed me right there…on the spot. I’m going to be on the radio show this morning.
What a connection! My hope is that we can continue this connection and my students will benefit from it. It’s moments like these that make me grateful that I get to come to school and be their teacher.
If you are local and reading this early enough, tune into The Tommy Show on 94.7 Fresh. I can’t wait to see where this takes us…the sky is the limit!
The student producer worked on this show until 9:30 last night. I’m so proud of him. Here’s today’s B-AM News for your viewing pleasure…
