A Completely Fun and Indulgent Note From Our Office

My wife, Virginia Cornelius, has been honored as the Mississippi teaching winner of 10th Annual 2007-08 Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement. She teaches Calculus, pre-calculus, and algebra at Lafayette County High School here in Oxford, MS. Working through her nomination she received some great letters from her past students. She's most appreciative of her students who've come with her through years at Cushing Academy and Lafayette. Our two children are especially proud of mommy.

A Little About the Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement:

To qualify for the award, teachers must have " a minimum of five years of teaching experience in math, science or technology AP courses are selected for their exemplary teaching and enthusiastic dedication to students and the AP Program." (Siemens)

The awards are part of "the Foundation's signature programs--the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology, the Siemens Awards for Advanced Placement, and the Siemens Teacher Scholarships.  The awards recognize exceptional achievement in science, math, and technology. By supporting outstanding students today, and recognizing the teachers and schools that inspire their excellence, the Foundation helps nurture tomorrow's scientists and engineers." (Siemens)
