I didn't realize until a few minutes ago, but I've been in a fog for the past few days. I can hardly remember this week... it must be from the stress of the observation. I met with my principal today and it went well, so :) that helps!!!
Really, one good meeting or one good comment can go a long ways! I have some Christmas lights up around the front of my classroom and it makes it cozier in there, and I can see a change in my students (especially when the lights are off and it's just the Christmas lights). I never imagined myself as the type to put lights or decorations up, but I like it!
It's snowing -- yea for winter!
