Over 100 students, teachers and press officials gathered in the auditorium today during 5B lunch as Magnet math teacher William Rose was presented with the Gazette's annual "My Favorite Teacher" award. Among 240 teachers nominated and 90 placed on an online ballot, Rose garnered 34,378 out of 95,000 votes.

One teacher was chosen from each of three levels: elementary, middle and high school from several designated districts. Rose won for the Montgomery County high school category and was featured on the cover of a Gazette insert.

Cliff Chiet, Vice President of Sales and Publishing for the Gazette, and several other spokespeople for sponsors of the award attended the award ceremony. Chiet congratulated Rose and said the award was an opportunity to honor teachers in Montgomery County publicly by allowing students to speak for their teachers. "It's a selfless ministry, and the reward is knowing you made a difference in that person's life," Chiet said.

Freshman Sherman Leung nominated Rose in the fall with a brief letter, in which he wrote that Rose "is a funny guy and always has an upbeat feeling of doing things."

Karen Rosales, vice president for retail delivery for the Montgomery County Teachers Federal Credit Union (MCT FCU), presented two $500 checks, one for Rose and another for Blair, which was handed to principal Darryl Williams. Williams backed Rose's diligence as a teacher who stays late at school and is seen at Blair on the weekends. "Congratulations, you really deserved it," Williams said. Williams announced that the second check would go to the Magnet program.

Rose concluded the ceremony with a few remarks, thanking the Gazette and his students. "It's definitely been an honor. It's definitely been a fun experience," he said.

    Yaaaaaayy!!! Mr. Rose won!!!! (but nobody told me about the ceremony, so I missed it. :P )

    do you think this means that he'll give us less homework? ;)

    doubt it. Humans are ~70% water, Rose is around 70% ungraded homework papers ^^ but we still love him :D

    No, the homework was part of the unique experience.

    don't they realize that its kind of fraudulent when Mr. Rose gets 1/3 of the votes in a field of 90 teachers?

    just something to sink about.

      Rose had smart students who knew how to write auto-voting programs. That's why he won.

    AHHH i had this man as a long-term sub in math like 3 years ago before he became a magnet teacher and he was just awful! he could not deal with teaching kids who didn't just intuitively understand mathematical concepts...aka non-honors classes. the best thing about him was how easy it was to cheat in his class.

    but still...guess it's good for him?

    Its the Gazette's fault for having a fail voting system.

      Ethically, that is a frightening statement.

      Just because someone or something is not illegal (or in this case a failed voting system) does not give someone the right to abuse their power and manipulate the system to solely benefit themselves and hurt (or in this case disenfranchise) everybody else.

If your feet are sliding forward in your shoes, causing the shoe to rub against your heel as you walk, try some insoles or heel cushions. These keep your feet firmly in your shoes, eliminating rubbing and friction. Another thing to remember -- nobody's feet are the exact same size.
