Of course I am working harder than I ever have before, of course like most teachers starting the second quarter I am overwhelmed by assessments, the gigantic amount of curriculum that must be taught, and creating interventions for students who are at risk. All this doesn't matter because I've finally landed at a school where I fit.
Fitting in at a school is a teacher's dream come true. Do you hear my sigh of relief? Can you feel my smile?
Five years of dues...Five years of lessons of focusing on OTHERS and not MYSELF...I'm doing it, and am happier at school...go figure.
Thanksgiving is very special time. I take the THANKS part very seriously. Contrary to what a some readers of this blog may think, I really do look beyond myself. I really do learn from mistakes and try to give a bit of ME to others.
