Here's Today's Feel-Good Story:
Tulsa, Oklahoma's Rebecka Peterson has been named ‘Teacher of the Year’ because of her classroom ritual of naming one good thing that happened each day.
Peterson asks her students to name something good that happened that day to show that joy can exist in the classroom. She documents these in her One Good Thing blog.
“Since Rebecka was named the Oklahoma Teacher of the Year, she has traveled all over the state to report on more stories of hope, creativity, and joy in classrooms,” said Oklahoma Education Association President Katherine Bishop. “She is truly passionate about the power of teachers and what it means to be a leader for your students and the community.”
