as tonight was open house, I had a VERY long day today...I teach in the city and because I take the train was unable to go home between the school day and my open house. I taught my very young 3 year olds from 830-315, did some work, and presented along with my coteacher from 6-730. Due to the train schedule, I didn't walk into my apartment until 9. When I opened my computer I found an email thanking us for staying so late, complimenting us on our dynamic, volunteering for class parents, and offering us anything on our classroom wish list. I am so happy....it feels good to be appreciated.
