Time Out Tuesday: Thankful

Who needs a time out? This girl! Thank goodness I only worked a 1/2 day. My class was driving me up the wall today (more than usual). I was in their class just last week too! But today I felt like I made several connections with kiddos so that's good :)

Oh and I had language class so my kids left and I got a new group. And I took them to the computer lab for Rosetta Stone and they logged on and went to their program. It sounds like the U.N. in there, some are doing German, Russian, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Spanish, etc. One girl said something about my first name and then called me my first name. I whipped around and told her that was inappropriate and that we call teachers by the last name (at that school one teacher goes by her first name but they have to add Ms. in front). Well little did she know, the principal was in the lab for whatever reason and heard it and called her back.

Later in the staff room, the principal said I handled that well and with the right response (happy dance inside) and also asked the student when has she ever called the principal by her first name. Student stuttered and principal said even if they were calling me by my first name, there needs to be respect and put in a Ms.  Lol.

Thankful is my TOT topic. Sometimes we feel like teaching is thankless but know that you are doing a great thing!  I'm thankful of the staff at the  school today (and at other schools) and that the principal supported me too :) I'm thankful that I'm getting sub jobs. I'm thankful for my health, for my family, friends, and my fur baby. I'm thankful for the blogging community, TBA, and all my bloggy buddies. If you haven't hear thanks yet today, I thank you for reading my blog :)  Thanks!

I've got some super positive quotes about thanks and gratitude. Just reading these made me happy!

-- A. J. Cronin

Gratitude helps you to grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.
