I'm having one of those weeks.
No, not one of THOSE weeks.
I'm having one of those weeks in which....well, I'm just happy.
I don't want to jinx it. Probably am right now. But....it's just been a reallllllly good week.
Am I crazy busy? Yeah. But everything I'm doing feels worth it.
Are all my kids doing what they're supposed to? No. But a whole lot of them are, including a select few who haven't been up till now.
Am I appreciated? ....Yes. To, like, a weird level. A kid told me today, "You know, you're, like, one of my favorite teachers. Even though I've never had you. I just like talking to you." And on Monday, a kid I had two years ago told me she wished she still had me. I said what I always say to that - I know, and I would've loved to've had her again, but I couldn't choose my schedule. Plus that the teacher she has is nicer than me. (Which is true.) To which she said, yeah, but I'm one of those explain-y types of teachers, and that's really cool. For a moment, I was speechless.
Next week might be different. TOMORROW might be different. But today...today I knew, deep down, in my soul, in my cells, why I love my job.
I hope you are all having (or have recently had, or will soon have) times like this.
OHHHHHH I love this week.
