Teacher Julie Ahern from Waukegan wins Hero Award

Mrs. Ahern's students are so gracious!

Mrs. Ahern’s students are so gracious!

Below is an email we received from a very special friend of DollarDays, second grade teacher Julie Ahern from Waukegan, IL, who we met through one of our Facebook merchandise giveaways where she was a winner, and we’ve stayed in touched ever since. We asked our fans to vote for her to win this award. We posted it on Facebook, Twitter and even our blog. We’re not sure how much of an impact we had, but were are so happy that she won this award AND her first trip to California!

It’s very rewarding to us that our fans took the time to help Julie win this award. A little kindness goes a long, long way!

Dear DollarDays,
I am very happy to share with you that, thanks to people like you and the Dollar Days’ fans, I did receive enough votes to become the American Federation of Teachers Everyday Hero Teacher winner.Smile  
 
This afternoon our school secretary called down to my classroom on the intercom to say that I had a telephone call. I shared that I had my students with me. She said, “It’s from AFT.” My students and I all looked at each other and I said, “Right, line up, we’re headed to the office!” I brought the phone out to the hallway and my students got to hear first hand the good news. Their loud cheers really warmed my heart. This summer I am invited to the AFT convention in Los Angeles —my first trip to California. Pinch me!
 
My Sincere Gratitude, 
Mrs. Julie Ahern
2nd Grade Teacher
