Knowing {Celebrate this Week}



Today I'm celebrating knowing.

Tuesday night I received a group text message welcoming a first grade teacher in our building to the second grade team.  We needed to add a teacher but I've been a bit worried and trying to let go that I didn't have a confirmation on my own teaching assignment.  As I reread this text message I began to infer, I must be staying on the second grade team.  I could of just replied and asked if my inferring was right but I did some detective work and found out those being moved this year got a phone call.  I didn't get a phone call.  I didn't want to make a phone call.  Yippee I get to spend more time with transitional readers and writers.  I get to really put things together after figuring it out for three years to make this year the best one yet!  It's nice to have the knowing, my mind is finding peace.

Thank you Ruth for encouraging us to stop and notice Celebrations.

  3. It makes me sad you had to do detective work. It makes me happy for your second graders and the amazing year they will have with you as their teacher.
