As you know, I am in an extended substitute position. You also already know that one of my EKers (pronounced “eek-ers”) has already praised me.
Today, I got praise from the teacher across the hall – whom I am absolutely love and adore. I am so happy that I am across from her and that I can go to her if I need advice and that she is available. Today, she told me that I was a natural and I was doing so well with these kids. She asked if this was the first time that I had taught. I felt incredibly happy to hear that. I smiled. I am still smiling thinking about it now. I’m sure it will make me smile if I look back on this and read it over.
Another reason to smile: hopefully there is another job on the horizon. I got an email today with a job posting for a long term sub position in the other elementary school building in the district (I attended both elementary schools as a student). I am going to send an email/letter of interest to the Principal at that school tomorrow. I will keep you posted on what I hear.
Hopefully, the school district’s investment in me will show here. Hopefully, my faith will be boosted. Hopefully, I will get the position!
What reasons have you had to smile lately?
