Staying in Touch

Today, I got to have lunch with a former student.  I love having those relationships with students that change and grow with the years.

A New Start

A few years ago, I did a thankful journal via this blog. Although I wasn’t always as timely as I should have been, I enjoyed the reflection and focus it gave me as I looked for ways and things to be thankful for.  This year, I’m going to renew my efforts and try to be a bit more on top of it so I’m not playing catch-up so much. So, here goes….

Today, I’m thankful for good books given by good friends who inspire me to be a better person.

Catch-up

Groceries, lawn, garden, papers, blogs, kitchen–all things that I’ve had to ignore in the craziness of teaching full time and tutoring 4 hours a day.  Today, I was able to catch-up on some of these.  So thankful to get some things done.

Whew!

In a 1 1/2 week period, I will miss school four different days–all for school obligations; in 15 years of teaching, this has never happened.  Today, it appears that I will survive this and be able to write decent sub plans so my students are still learning.

9-11

Today, I’m so happy that despite problems and despite hatred and despite stupidity America is still free.

Presentation

Today, I presented at our forensics conference.  It went well and was helpful to those who attended, so I’m thankful.

Another Year Older

Today is my birthday.  It has been a good birthday.  Hanging with forensics people, eating cheesecake at 11 p.m., having a few drinks I didn’t have to pay for.  Good day.

Most of my Time

Today, I’m really glad that the majority of my time at work is spent with teenagers and not adults. Yep, today, that’s enough.
