The Time Has Come

Okay here are the three nominees that YOU will be voting for... read the bios, and leave a comment to vote!
#1 Joann Pace!! Mother of eight, and the youngest is now in high school, and since the youngest is now in high school, and she has a little more time on her hands, she going back to work! I swear the woman NEVER stop moving!!
-nominated by Michelle Pace Clark

#2 I want to nominate my sister-in-law Mindie Barlow for the salon treat. Mindie has ALWAYS been a wonderful teacher, in and out of the classroom, but she really does shine in her kindergarten classroom at Bass Elementary. Here's the ting about Mindie, she is ALWAYS upbeat. It doesn't matter that she has over 60 students a day who struggle to keep quiet, not wiggle, and to wipe themselves in the bathroom or that she has another full-time gig as a wife and mom her her own 3 kids, Mindie maintains a positivity that is infectious. From the periphery, I have listened to the parents of her students rave about what a wonderful, loving, and attentive teacher she is. She shows her kids and their strengths and weaknesses; always trying to help them succeed and LOVE learning. Further, Mindie is supportive of her fellow teachers. Teachers can be hard on one another, and office politics can take it's toll, but I've witnessed Mindie time and time again be supportive and friends to all her co-workers. She points out the positivs of those she works with and has a wonderful effect on the morale at her school. And if a darling kindergarten teacher with no time of her own doesn't compel you to pick Mindie Barlow then you need to know that as my friend and my family, she has taught me to be a better person. She is loyal and loving and an example of all that's good in the world. It wasn't my choice that my husband's brother married her, but it could not have been a better blessing in my life. To have a cheerleader and an influence like Mindie has impacted my family's life AND the lives of her students for the better. She needs a day to be pampered and reminded of what a little hot tamale she is, even if Monday - Friday she's teaching how to use scissors, how not to eat the glue sticks and how to sit criss-cross-applesauce.
-nominated by Sarah Barlow

#3 I would like to nominate my daughter, Lindsay. Although she is already beautiful, she is a little stressed out right now and could use some pampering. She is a great teacher and totally deserves a little relaxation. She is stressed with wedding plans, and preparing for school, as well as coaching a high school girl's volleyball team. So ya, vote for Lindsay!!

AND good luck to Joann, Lindsay and Mindie!!!
