The day that I'll be in love with forever. It happens once a century, I might as well enjoy it.
Truth is, I woke up dreading today. I wasn't able to sleep last night, I kept waking up freaking out. Today was... OBSERVATION DAY. Every teacher knows that when they're being evaluated they need to be observed. I have no doubts that I love what I do and that I'm pretty good at it, but I freak out every time somebody needs to come in and see me. There are so many what if's involved.
- What if my kids don't get it?
- What if my kids talk too much?
- What if they ask the wrong kid a question and they can't answer it?
- What if somebody asks me a question I can't answer?
My kids were amazing today. As all of you were once twelve, you understand that life as a 12 year old is quite... interesting. Add some algebra into that mix and well, yeah. You understand that it could be recipe for disaster. I had to teach them algebra today and somehow, I'm going with because I'm amazing, it was PERFECT. They were all on task and engaged, they kept having those amazing "ah-ha" moments so everyone knew it, and they were proud of themselves. I couldn't be more proud of them. Love those kiddos.
So after that I was pretty much on cloud nine. Only to then get this email:
Hello, perfect day. I'll definitely be enjoying my run through DC in April that caps off with a Tiffany Necklace! Never thought I'd be excited about that little blue box, but I'll have earned it! Nike is a dream race, along with a Disney race (which will one day happen).
Do you have any dream races?
