appreciate her very much. the foundation has been a committed partner and sustained the program by helping teachers to pay the fees and grow. particularly in the strategic schools the grant have a limited time and this is the last year with our limited grant but the limited school board our partner has included us in the grants. a federal grant. the $15 million sporting effective grant has brought together new york and washington and nevada and kentucky and san francisco. the goals are to grow the number of schools and additionally we're going to increase the leadership roles of teacher by
defining those are roles and directing the teachers. finally with the national board of international teachers you may have realized that sandy said the real work begins. we need to look with urgency to make sure that the reaching out to observer colleagues for teaching is accomplished so we can strengthen our practices and the quality of our reflection. this is how we change the profession to congratulations to the class of 2013 we will be calling names and passing out the awards. please hold your applause.
