I am ever so grateful to Ruth Ayres for inviting us to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.
Last Tuesday I revealed my one little word for 2015 - TURN. As I go through this year, I want to celebrate the turns in my life - the good, the bad, and the bumpy.
I celebrate returning to school after a much needed Christmas break. The best part about new grading periods is that all of the students get a new chance. The students seemed excited about returning, and we are off to a great start.
I celebrate a life turn for my daughter Megan. She began her student teaching this week. She will have a dual license, special ed and general ed K-6. Her first placement is in a resource room working with k-2 kids as well as a 5th grade student with Autism. She has started to build a relationship with the 5th grader. While working with him, he kept rubbing her watchband. She was so excited to link what she learned about sensory learners to the actual classroom. This is going to be so much fun!
Now, for my turn. I have limited my Diet Coke consumption this week, and I can't believe how much better I feel. I actually went two days with only drinking one, and most days just had one at lunch. I have taken a healthier lunch to school and drank more water. I still need to get that exercising started, but one
Have a great week and may you find many celebrations along the way.
