A Good Week

Sometimes there are moments during teaching when I wonder what the heck I am doing. I second doubt my decision to become a teacher and wonder if I can really do it. I am sure that happens to all new teachers in their first couple of years.

But then there are the days when I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be and everything (well, almost everything) runs exactly to plan.

I had three good days of school this week (out of three days of school.) I was more patient, more firm, more consistent and may have used some bribes. But everything equaled a better school day for me and my students. (Hopefully I am not jinxing myself with this post.)

There are 95 school days until summer vacation. I can make it.
