Being awarded merit pay, a hefty amount, for excellence in teaching 3 years in a row. After the 3rd award, merit pay was discontinued due to far too many teachers not being pleased that one teacher was awarded 3 years in a row. Just as well. I can understand they may have felt slighted, but I sure did work hard to excel in my job.

Congrats on the three awards! When our grandson was in the 6th grade he won several awards at the end of the year. One had a top winner in three catagories: math, science and I don't remember the third. Nathan won two of the three and of course we were very proud. Found out at the ceremony afterwards that he actually came in first in all three, but the school wanted another student to get something. That just wasn't right, although Nathan said it was fine with him.

@1creekgirl Yes, I think Nathan should have been awarded all three at the ceremony. The first year I won, all congratulated me. The second year I won, not as many congratulated me. The third year I one, the teachers' union was not happy and voted to cancel merit awards. The principal actually took me outside of the building to hand me the check each time I won. A shame that one has to hide their success from others.

The proudest and happiest moment of my life was when my first child was born.

Hard to say because there have been a few in different areas. Maybe publishing my first scholarly article in a peer-review academic journal.

Being a published author. It was always a dream of mine to write and publish my own books. And I did it! Yes, I published them myself, without searching for a publisher who will want to publish my books. But I don't care. I wanted to be a published author and I am.
