    positive attitude

    One important thing to remember in teaching is to take joy in small things. It is interesting that you and I each had a special day yesterday. I have been teaching a long time and realize that thank you's and positive comments are few and far between, but yesterday I got TWO thank you notes, one from a student teacher, not mine, thanking me for my friendliness and support when she was having problems, and the other from a colleage I volunteer with for an after-school club. I work with small groups for reading support and the group I started in January was a horror, but they are starting to work together, I really had fun with them! Another little boy was switched to a special ed program and I know he will miss me as I will miss him. Sometimes you need to see students in another setting. I got to see my third graders practicing for their recorder concert, its easy to forget how young even third graders are! Another kid talked with me about our school family fun night last Friday, where I had been one of the Suessville face painters. It IS worth the time and the effort and the prayers!
