I would like to share a few things from the past week that made me smile and laugh.
On Friday I asked the students to write me a letter and they could tell me anything that they wanted to. My plan was to write back to them and at the same time get in a little writing assessment with a little bit of getting to know you. I really enjoyed doing this and would like to do it at the end of each month.
There were two that stood out to me.
"Anyway, I think you come up with amazing ideas, you're artistic and have great methods."
This was nice to hear because I don't feel as if this statement applies so much to me at the moment. So to get that feedback from the ones that are reaping the outcome of the ideas and methods was reassuring.
"My first wish job is alligator wresting. Sounds scary doesn't it?"
Oh my goodness, I laughed about this for a good five minutes! This coming from a sweet little girl who doesn't say much and looks as if she doesn't get dirty often. She then told me that her second dream job was being a teacher. Good thing she has a back up plan incase alligators aren't her friends.
I need to remember these moments often and look for more throughout the day.
