    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. :)

    Wow. I am happy that we didnt do an open house this year because I basically just sit there and do my homework while waiting for no one to show up.

    How very nice of that parent! I hope you emailed back that she made your night!

    I think that the parents really do appreciate us, but very often simply forget to let us know.

    I love it when we get support like that. I'd keep that email too. Congrats for a job well done.

    Congrats! It's always rewarding to get positive words from a parent--they are our best allies. Keep that email and when you have a bad day, read it to remind yourself that you are AWESOME!
