Today I finished my 17th parent teacher conference of the week. Only 5 more to go.
I actually just wrote “Woo-hoo!” and then erased it. I feel like I should be exhausted but, interestingly, I am not. I actually am feeling energized and raring to go for the final 50 days!
I have a pretty tricky group of students this year but I must say, I have been more than pleased with the family’s support and general good will towards me, our classroom learning community and our school in general. What a wonderful feeling to be appreciated and even praised for doing what can sometimes be a thankless, if not completely overlooked, job.
It feels good to embrace contentment, satisfaction and peace. Woo-Hoo!
