Something Good from School: Things are starting to click. The first few months of school were massively draining with so much going on both at school and in my personal life, plus I had mono for 6 weeks. Since going back in January, I feel like I have a fresh start to improve things. I am so thankful to finally be getting some helpful ideas and strategies from various interventionists and colleagues. I have so many strugglers this year that I am taking all the help I can get. Also, I am trying some new Responsive Classroom techniques to build community and to deal with misbehavior. So far they are working well. I am very thankful for how things are going so far.
Something Good from Home: I am finally feeling better! After being sick for most of the first months of school with an infection and then mono, I finally feel like I have more of my normal energy and personality back. Mono is more draining than I ever imagined. Along with being tired, I felt so down in the dumps and burned out about everything. It is so good to be getting back to being myself. The only not good thing is that Josh now has mono! I am better and he is sick! Oh well, hopefully he will learn from me what NOT to do and will actually rest up and get better soon.
Those are my good things. Hop on over to Rowdy in First Grade to link up to share yours.
Please leave me a comment if you have any thoughts about my good things or about anything at all.
