Well, truth be told, the 2nd grade teacher I work with, actually gave me this coin about a year ago. She said it was because I was a big help to her in the classroom and she appreciated it. I just came across it today (6-10-19) while in front of laptop. She did ask in fall 2018 if I ever entered it on line. Well, considering my past year, better late than never! Thank you Marcia! I shall pass along tomorrow!
