Celebrate Good Times, Come On! - 10/4
Each Saturday Ruth Ayres invites us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week. Looking for celebrations has certainly improved my outlook on my week. For that, I am certainly grateful to Ruth and to all of you who choose to celebrate with me.
This week I am celebrating a few small things which have made a big difference in my week.
Early this week I received this email from a student I had last year. It made my reading heart smile.
Thursday I emailed my principal and asked him if there was an extra book case no one was using. I was hesitant to ask since I am a new teacher. I explained how I have been buying and will continue to buy books at a higher level to update my classroom library for this new grade level. It was delivered by the end of the day! Watch out credit card!
I celebrate administrators who listen compassionately. Friday I met with our new assistant principal. I asked to meet with her because of my rising level of frustration. I am having difficulty moving from the amount of instructional time I had in the elementary level to the amount of time at the middle school level. I feel so much better today while planning for next week.
Our class Twitter was featured in our high school newspaper. Here is the link and the article is on the back page. My son's band is featured on the front page too!
I celebrate little things - an email, a bookcase, a listening ear, and a high school newspaper.
Have a great week and may you find many things to celebrate along the way!
