Governor’s Council on Disability Awards Local Woman ‘Educator of the Year’


Yesterday, the wife of Fat Jack was awarded the Educator of the Year in a ceremony at a local university. It was part of the Governor’s Council on Disability’s 16th Annual Inclusion Awards. Read that to mean that she makes sure the classroom includes everyone, regardless of disability.

Classy. Powerful. Smart. She’s a keeper, that one. And a proud liberal woman. Can you hear her roar? I’m going deaf from it, but I carry on. Love will do that to you.

I stopped by to watch the awards between classes, but I only stayed a minute (long enough to have some cake). I really wanted to be there for the whole thing, but school got in the way.
