I started my new position on Thursday and at first, I have to say that I was NOT liking it. It didn't feel right and I was really thinking I made the wrong choice. During the course of the day, my attitude changed. My student is such a darling girl. At the end of the day, I got two pieces of artwork from her, two hugs, and told that I was going to be missed during the weekend. This is huge for an autistic child. I knew right then and there that I was put there to help this young 2nd grader. I think I'm going to love this.
Then, I come home and in my mailbox was a letter from the radiology department. I had a mammogram on Tuesday and was a little worried since there is a history of breast cancer in my family. The letter informed me that there were no significant abnormalities and cancer was not detected at this time. Whew!
Then, I check my email. I get a letter from my instructor. I'm taking a class I need for my SpEd credentials here in Nevada. I had just submitted my exam on Wednesday. Well, the email was from my instructor informing me that he graded my exam. I log into my grade book, and find out that I made an 18/18 on the test. Woo hoo!! That makes my average a 99%. I think I got this! LOL There is only one more test and an essay left, and then the course is finished.
So, all in all it was a fabulous day! Since we are on a four day school week, I am off until Tuesday - I took a personal day to take my friend to the doctor. It's gonna be a great weekend.
