Have you ever been frustrated because you looked at your to-do list at the end of the day and it wasn't done?
I mean, I know. It never is.
But today as I left, I was frustrated. My desk was still a mess. I'm not ready for Monday. I'll have to go back tomorrow and finish that up. It's just the way of the work.
But today I:
- had a conversation before school around a professional book and learned what was really on the minds of some of my colleagues.
- helped students get going on some math as the day started.
- lead a morning meeting where we are working hard to listen to our peers and stay on topic when we speak to each other.
- passed out snack.
- helped students finish research topics of interest and write paragraphs on them.
- opened milk cartons and read notes at lunch to my PreK friends.
- visited with a colleague
- listened to some memory work
- cleaned tree sap off a student's ear
- worked through a math test with friends
- rearranged furniture in the classroom.
- taught PE. Exercises and free play today.
- dismissed students.
- set up a book fair with colleagues.
- visited with more colleagues
- drove a car full of kids home
- ate dinner and watched basketball with my Mr.
- typed a slice!
This makes me feel better when I reflect on what I have done. Tomorrow is a fresh start to finish two quick jobs at school.
