Yesterday was a very sad day: It was my intern's last day. She did such an amazing job with my students. When I think back to the first day she came in until yesterday, I realize how much she grew professionally. She came in kind of meek (especially with the behavior management) but finished very strong. She was a delight to get to know, and it's nice to know that I helped someone coming into the profession get a good, positive start. Now I have to get back to work and pick up where she left off! I
Only 1 more Bus Duty Day and I'm done for the year! YEEE-HAW! It's probably a good thing, too, since I was late (again) this morning. But, I didn't have to be in the gym last, which means no little children were crying. I am very, very thankful that I don't have duty the last week of school...talk about cruel and unusual punishment! I am, however, really glad that I have the schools that I have. Both of them are very laid back, but are so caring about the students. There may be 1 or 2 teachers that I wonder how much they like their job, but for the most part they are there for the kids. And, they all know how to laugh and have a good time! It definitely makes it a lot easier to go to work when you have those people with you in the trenches! Yes, God is good!
Have a fun Thursday!
Bus duty, eh?? I think that makes me glad to be a HS teacher!!ReplyDelete
I thought of you when I put that church picture up today. It was the oldest Catholic Mission Church west of the Mississippi. I'm not Catholic, but I loved that little church with its pump organ.
Six days for your son! Wow!! He really is on the countdown!
So great that you can have such an impact on a young professional. Maybe, just maybe she won't like that other job and she will come back!!ReplyDelete
