Oh boy! Do they ever
***I didn't like the daily visualization question today, but I loved the woo-hoo quote above.
I am so thankful to be a teacher and to go back to work today. I have my own 2 wonderful children at home and have enjoyed them so much over the past 2 weeks, but I am so ready to go and serve and love my classroom kids too.
I have 29 students this year and it has been very difficult. 16 students are below level just on the reading - words - per - minute (WPM)
BUT... I love the challenge (truly) that's not just blowing sunshine. The 2 years since my Ironman Triathlon I have put much more work and effort into my classroom students. I have a group that comes in before school 7:45-8:15 and a group after school 3:10-4:10. This is my "extra" Ironman training and it has felt OH! So good!!! The kids are making so much progress.
SO, I am off to a wonderful place today. With my eating... I almost always make great choices until after school around 4:30 so this evening will be very interesting... SUCCESSFUL.
Off to exercise on the elliptical and get ready for the day ahead.
MAKE IT GREAT SPARK-FRIENDS
