Just a quick "Hello"

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I've given up just about everything to get through this first year of intern teaching. I passed my last certification exam and just have a few more hoops to jump through to make my certification official (including a recommendation from the school principal that I work for.) The work is challenging, but it's the kind of active learning that I enjoy. I have been thinking that school next year, I will certainly have to find time in my busy schedule to work my spark program into my routine. It would help a great deal you use the tools every day. One thing I know is that to do my job well, I need to be my healthy best. Children require a lot of energy!
The pace is quickening as we get through testing season and continue on to the end of the year. Today will be entirely school work. No rest for the weary. I will be working to find my sparkability levels soon. Miss the positive energy that you pass on to me. Hope to see you more often in the near future.

    Nancy, I'm catching up late on your update. Way to go on getting that certificate! Woohoo!! If you figure out a way to fit in *sparking,* I'd be happy to know what they key is. I just don't seem to be able to do it. I think I've got it under control and WHOOPS! there it goes.

Nice to hear from you! How lucky are those kids???!!! Hugs!

    Nancy - Great to hear you've made it this far. Teaching takes a lot of energy.

I also hope to get back on Sparks soon. My time recently has been taken up with other things as well but am hoping to step it up and build up to more active exercising. (I fell at work but I am back teaching half time. I have about 2-3 more acupuncture treatments left before any 'real' exercising happens but it will).

Again - great to hear from you.
