Haute for Teacher
Ask my husband and I what our dream job is, and we'd both say, in unison, "a teacher."
Clark and I were very blessed to attend fabulous schools throughout our lives, but we are each particularly thankful for our high school experiences...me and my small class of 25 at Rocky Mount Academy in teeny Rocky Mount, NC and Clark at Woodberry Forest School a beautiful boarding school in the hills of Virginia, outside of Charlottesville. Though both of our experiences were incredibly different, we are both ever grateful for the time we spent on each campus, developing us into the people we are today. We make it a point to give back every year.
While we enjoyed our sports teams, our school dances and the "fun stuff" for those 4 years before college, we make it no secret that our teachers and mentors have almost everything to do with our happiness and our growth as people.
Celebrating this thought, an Atlanta area shopping center, Vinings Jubilee, wants to give back to the teachers that continue to give us all so much. Submit your favorite local teacher via this form, and he or she could win one of four $100 gift certificate to be redeemed at any store in Vinings Jubilee Shopping Center. (Emly Benham & Sandpiper would be my picks - no doubt!) Submissions must be entered in the next two weeks! After all, the only thing better than getting something for 100 and south is getting it!
