Tired, but proud

Delta’s middle school returned today from the TSA State Conference, with trophies.

Two of the three events that I coach brought home hardware: 1st Place for Cyberspace Pursuit (students design and launch a website according to the design brief), and 2nd Place for Electronic Game Design (students design and build a working computer game within specified parameters — including no violence).

Also, three ORHS students — all graduates of the same middle school’s program — were elected to state office today.

Delta’s in the Electronic Game Design crew — third from the left on the front row.  She’s pretty tickled to bring home a trophy this year.

After four days in Pigeon Forge with 31 middle school kids, studying the school budget in between everything else, I’m exhausted.  There’ll have to be a stop at Starbucks before tonight’s meeting.  Even so, I’m really, really proud of all of these kids.

And, should you be a parent of one or more of these, you should be too.  These kids are our future, and it’s looking pretty sweet.

    It doesn’t get any better than that. The tired is a good tired and a worth while venture. Congrats to all of them especially Delta who holds a special place in my heart. Delta, I am SO proud of you.

    Thank you for the complement girlfriend. Needless to say, I was very excited to go up and receive an award.

    Way to go Delta and Netmom! I am so very proud of both of you, although not surprised. I expect great things from the both of you!
