enjoying work

I'm working a different position at the same school this year.

Its challenging, and I'm learning a lot about how they do documentation.


Some of the students (teens) are great, others are fine but I don't have a report with at this time ...


told one guy today I'm a smother mother (he's been sick and I keep checking on how he's feeling)

Re: enjoying work

snafu plans to stock up on chocolate for the next few weeks .... students' moods are elevated due to the holiday season and finals/break coming

snafu's current quote: "you've got to want it* worse than I do"


and right now it looks like I want it more






*"it" = bring grade(s) up

It's very hard to let go when you care, but their grades are THEIR grades. You be responsible for what you have to do.

A little secret-- stop looking at the grades and focus on the other behaviors that support good grades, catch them being good! For example, "You made flash cards to study with? That's brilliant!"
