Talks of Gratitude...

Today's Thoughts: I am still sick...luckily today we did some testing (ok...not so lucky. I hate annoying testing, but in this case it worked out for me!) so I was able to rest some. Unfortunately when I came home I took a nap (good) and woke up with no voice (bad!)...so the decision was made to stay home tomorrow. It is hard to teach when you can't talk...Needless to say, although I had a rough sick day, overall things went fairly well...I had an opportunity to speak with my boss about some important things regarding my personal school experience and how I see myself creating my job this spring and where I see myself fitting at school. I asked for an opportunity to reintroduce myself and recreate the experience I have been having this year. I felt it was a good conversation and am hoping that I can truly move forward recreating my job, my life, my world.

Today's Gratitude January 8, 2014: Today I am truly grateful for friends. My dear friend, although recently losing her beloved grandmother, still texts me every morning to see how I am feeling. My friend at work, who is actually student teaching with me, makes me smile when she is there. I love the conversations about life and teaching that we have. I had a wonderful talk with a co-worker after school, about a whole lot of nothing and lunch with another friend as we try to sort out our new lunch schedule. Although this year I have struggled to find my way, I am really working to identify and be grateful for those in my life that have helped to keep my sanity and keep me grounded. These people have always been there, I have been just too deep in my dark place to appreciate them. This is what I am turning around...open the curtain, let in the light. I am ready for the light in my life...that is what gratitude is about...this is why I am on this journey...

  1. I am grateful for having you in my life. I am grateful for you being my CT. I am grateful for every part of my days with you. Without you as my mentor I would not be finishing this program. Don't forget about the parts of you that help everyone around you be happier people just for knowing you. I am happy to be a part of your life as a teacher and a friend. Get well soon. Ryelyn
