(CLEAR CREEK COUNTY shot on 5/3/05) (LEFT, FOREGROUND) Frances Matsumoto, teacher, Superior Elementary School, competes in the Chalkboard part of the competition against, Debbie Pink, teacher, (BACKGROUND) Kohl Elementary School, rewriting the phrase, "I will always try my best", five times, neatly please. FlatIron Crossing Shopping Center, Broomfield, Colo., held its first annual Teacher Olympics Event to honor National Teacher Day. Eight teachers were selected for a head to head competition in four categories, speed grading, chalkboard writing, spelling bee and school item storage. Each was timed and checked for accuracy and the overall winner got a gold apple and a $500 gift certificate intended for purchases of student supplies they usually must pay for out of their own pocket. They said today the average amount a teacher spends over a year in her class for items otherwise gone lacking is about $500 which is how they came up with the figure for the first place award.
