Today was a good day...

Today was a good day.  I started my Sixth Period by telling them that I was going home unhappy.  But instead of being unhappy, I was going to be the impetus for change--I can only control myself, after all.  I told them that everything I skip any sort of team-building, I regret it. I hadn't done any team building activity at my last school because I looped with so many students that I didn't need to. Things are different and now I need to make amends. 

There was a lot of listening and helping neighbors today, and I think my students got a greater understanding of each other's shortcomings.

And my icing, the emergency, all-hands-on-deck parent meeting gave one of my more difficult cases a new perspective on schooling in general. Yay me. Yay us.
