"What was the event this past week that most took me by surprise - an event where I saw or did something that shook me up, caught me off guard, gave me a jolt or made me unexpectedly happy?"
Well, I guess my week was happy! In the same day I survived my Administrative Assistant come into my class unannounced to observe me, then a student had a fainting spell in my class and a “ SURPRISE” Fire Drill all right before Dr. Montrois came to observe me! I felt so off my “A” game it wasn’t even funny. Dr. M and I had a GREAT talk afterwards and he gave me some great pointers and told me I was on track with things. After that I was at school until 8:30 pm the Salon had a Fundraiser that night for students, staff and outside guests. Helped a Student color another student’s hair Blue…Can’t have much more fun than that! Long day….but I was HAPPY to have survived it!
Today, I had a student tell me that I am the reason she comes to school, my class is her favorite and I had 3 students tell me today that they liked my hair, my eye shadow and that I looked very professional! Again, made me feel HAPPY!
Next week I am on Fall Break. I to will be attending the New Teacher Conference in Macon. So HAPPY!
Looking forward to it, just a small break to re-group and pick up some more tips, tricks and insights for the classroom. HAPPY!
