I want to take a moment to brag. For 3 years prior to my current school I dreaded work, had constant headaches, was sick all the time and developed a nervous eye twitch. Today for the first time I realized how completely thankful I am to have transferred to a new school. My assistant was out for half the day and my class of 19 kindergartners went pretty smoothly. We're a PBIS School and my class was silent going up the hallway for lunch, got a compliment from the principal, a student messed up the bathroom and was honest and told me he did it an explained what happened, 2 of my behavior issues went down to 1 today and I was able to give her a reward... I'm still working on my other one. My students were on task when I received 3 dropin visits from admin, one student counseled another student when she cried because she didn't think her work was good enough, she hugged her and said her work was beautiful... I could go on an on an on. It feels so good to be happy an satisfied with work! My job expectations has increased greatly, but I don't mind rising to the expectations and doing my best to make it happen. I truly feel happy to wake up an go to work everyday. Are there any other success stories? Were you in a horrible working environment prior to transferring to a new school?
