Good Things [MTBOS Blogging Initiative Week 1]
Monday: I connected with a student that I've been having a hard time connecting with. (The student appreciated my fair grading policy, and it encouraged him to turn in late work. Yay!)
Tuesday: I gave input for making changes in our math department, and my opinion was valued.
Wednesday: I've always been susceptible to strong, random cravings. In the middle of teaching today, I just blurted out that I wanted ice cream really badly. The next period, one of my 9th grade students came in with an ice cream sandwich from the cafeteria. I couldn't believe it. It was the sweetest thing ever. We also had a two hour delay, and I was so grateful for the extra sleep.
Thursday: (Two hour delay again!) A student that graduated last year called to find out when I'm free during the day so he can visit while he's home from college. I really miss last year's graduating class. They were the best. <3
Friday: I had my post-observation for my mini-observation from Thursday. My principal had awesome feedback and ideas for me. Then he told me that I am being recommended for tenure this year! :)
