I was out sick on Wednesday. Feeling better but still sluggish I made my way to work on Thursday.
I typically setup for my day the afternoon before so I try to get to my classroom early. Success!
Walking into the building I am full of anxiety. Will the classroom be a mess? Will anything be broken? What will the guest teacher’s note say?
I slowly open the door to my classroom and look around. Not bad! Everything looks like it did when I left it. Nothing broken like the last time. Another success.
I spot the guest teacher note near the smartboard. “We spent most of the morning needing reminders of talking and self control.” Ugh…opposite of success.
I make my way to my desk. I spot something new. Something green. “Little touch of spring for your desk,” reads the note from a parent. My smile is back!
Here goes another day!
