How many times have you ever felt better ranting and raving about negative things that happened during the day? Well, sometimes this feels good and necessary. However, I think it keeps me down in the long run. I’ve decided to keep a running log of the good things that happen during the school day at Princeton Academy. I believe it will help me appreciate my job and love my colleagues and students just a little more.
I promise to do the following for my readers:
- Keep the posts short. I don’t want any TLDR thoughts popping up
- Change the names of my colleagues and students to maintain anonymity
- Keep things positive
So here it goes…
Today I heard an update about a former 8th grade student that is running cross country and is off to a good start at boarding school. I’m so glad he’s happy and adjusting well.
The school bought fruit and bagels for today’s open house. I was able to eat a bunch of pineapple and blueberries.
New posters for my classroom arrived today. Now before students enter the room, they will see, “I ❤️ Math. It makes people cry.”
Some co-workers and I collaborated to put name labels and new schedules in student planners to be handed out tomorrow. Quick and efficient!
Woot. Day 1 a success.
