Today the KTOY Team had the unique privilege to present at the joint House and Senate committee. We each spoke on our personal passions on education such as educating the whole child, meeting each child's special needs, finding relevance to curriculum, project based learning, effective technology integration, and inspiring children to exceed expectations. Believe it or not, we received a standing ovation from the committee members, and we are humbled by this gesture. Thank you all.
Next up was a dash over to the Senate floor where we were each presented to the senate by our regional senators - Thank you to each of them - and participated in a proclamation and standing ovation to recognize us as the 2013 KTOY team. Once again we were humbled in every way. Thank you.

We had a lovely conversation over our students, why we love to teach, and how important it is for us to support our students and schools. Thank you Governor for t
