Awesome Supervisors

I am thrilled with my supervisor right now. Since my class size has grown to 7 ED kiddos, I put in a request for another TA, and lo and behold she went to our superintendent and it is almost approved!

Not only that, but while going over a self-assessment with me, I mentioned that I use the technology I have available (TV, computer, and overhead) and she said she'd put a request in for a Smartboard for our room!

Now, it might never happen, but to know she's at least trying---I'm just so happy.

Not to mention the fact my building principal is a peach.

I feel supported. This is a huge change from last year! Anyway, I just thought I'd share my happiness.

WOW! I am so happy that things are working out better for you. And I'm so jealous about your class size!!

Yeah! That is something that makes a huge difference! I definitely work differently when I feel like what I do is noticed & that others think I make a difference. It is great to feel valued!
