Virtual Roses

Besides the obvious fabulosity of it being Friday, I got a few virtual roses today that made me feel kind of neat.
  • my principal (and some other district people) met with the Somali organization I tutor with (for a different reason - long story), and in his words, they think I'm "pretty awesome."
  • I got my post-observation report from my observing principal today and it is detailed, quite complimentary, and she told me that she thinks I do a great job
  • one of my students that freezes while taking tests, but is really quite smart, came in after school for the specific purpose of telling me that she likes history for the first time in her life
These three small compliments will seriously make my entire week and carry me through to spring break. Tiny little virtual roses that mean so incredibly much to any teacher (or really, any person) - the thought that you are being appreciated.

Which brings me to the future. Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up the first week in May, and I would love to host a blog party...maybe doing something along the lines of what I did last year? If you don't read this blog regularly, or if you are new here, last year I had a week's worth of posts in which I talked about my favorite teachers from elementary to high school and thanked them. What do you think? Would anyone else be interested in doing this and all linking to each other? It gives us some time to think about it and plan for it

I'd love it if you joined!
