Thanks to Nerd In The Brain, an excellent blogger and teacher, for her inspiration to post three things from the past week for which I am grateful.
1. I am grateful for my students. They work SO hard and despite bumps in the road, are delightful, resilient, and funny. A sampling of conversational topics this past week: hippo poop, mouse poop, dog poop, signs of aging (hmm…), autism, college football championship, and skiing.
2. I am grateful for the parents of my students. They are gracious, kind, generous, and supportive. A sampling of conversational topics this past week: back injury, allergies, skiing, the flu, icy weather, and poop.
3. I am grateful for my husband. He is endlessly supportive, hauls my materials everywhere, and makes me cups of tea at every opportunity. A sampling of conversational topics this week: Friday Night Lights, what’s for dinner, it’s getting late, and “Don’t talk about poop!”
I’d love to hear your list!
