Oh boy! Do they ever emoticon

Spark-Coach-Daily Visualization:
***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 emoticon

    I am a teacher, too! I still enjoy going to "work" after 20 years of teaching special education. We add exercise to our daily routine. We stretch, lift light weights and walk the track. (Most of students stay in the house once they are home.)

Congrats on still loving your job and "kids" at school. Congrats on your Iron Man and keep up the great work! emoticon

    It makes me feel great reading posts from currently teaching teachers like you because even if I took a break at least there are still caring teachers like you out there in the field! Bless you! emoticon

    I love hearing about the teachers who ARE in the right place - because there's just nothing more important that you can do! You might be the one person that day who gives your 'kids' at school something positive, something that says Hey You Matter, or helps throw on that light switch.
It's huge - and it is inspiring to feel your positive energy that you take into your classroom emoticon
