Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Acceptance Speech: Nobel Prize Outstanding Professional Teacher Award
When I first heard about my nomination for the Nobel Prize for Outstanding Professional Teacher Award, I told myself that just being nominated for this award was more than I could have ever expected in my career. My first reaction to the nomination was to worry about what I might provide as an acceptance speech for such a great and humbling honor. But what I found myself doing instead these past few weeks was reflecting on how I got to this plateau in my career. Stated in different words, the nomination has given me both cause and opportunity to reflect upon my entire career. And as I have reflected, an extraordinary sense of appreciation has emerged within me for all...
The end:
.....mbol of that realization. Once again, thank you for this great honor.
