Dancing Educators

Earlier this school year, principals and teachers traveled to Washington, D.C., from across the country to take part in the 2011 Blue Ribbon Schools Award ceremony.  Their schools were being honored by the U.S. Department of Education for their overall academic excellence or for their success in closing achievement gaps.

When it was time to receive their awards, some of the educators got pretty excited.

  1. Brings back wonderful memories of new friends and collaboration with excellent enthusiastic educators! Thanks for sharing! Plan to share this with my faculty. I couldn’t describe the level of excitement before, now I can show them : )

  2. I was thrilled to see the excitement captured on video! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed being one of the many to dance across the stage! We plan on showing this video during our local Blue Ribbon ceremony next week. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Thanks for sharing! Brings back great memories of our walking across
    that stage in 2010.
    I think we should start a petition to nominate Aba for Dancing With The Stars.
    Congratulations to all of the 2011 Blue Ribbon School Communities.

  4. What a wonderful video!! Loved being there and loved seeing the excitement. As a pre-requisite to winning, Blue Ribbon School representatives must have passed an “amazing dancers assessment”.

  5. Lolo…considering the effort it takes to receive such an honor, they MUST dance to celebrate, who could sit still!
