I'm not very smart!

So today I woke up a little late and was having a very slow morning. This means that I was having a hard time get ready. I was sleepy and did not feel like I slept the best. So when it was a couple of minutes after 7 I hurried outside to leave for the day. My parents have a gate around their house so you have to back out of the drive way and make sure you clear the gate. Normally this is not an issue, but today it was. After 12 years of driving out of the same drive way with the same gate, I hit it today. Not only do I feel like a moron for hitting the same gate I drive past everyday but I put a nice big dent in my bumper. So to top everything off, I will now have to pay for my car to get fixed. I'm now in the category of people that can not back up correcctly. (Did I tell you I have a back up camera?)

So at a staff meeting a couple of months ago, we were given this paper to nominate people for the January board meeting. It had certificated, classified, parent volunteer and even a spot for an 8th grade student. I of course threw the paper away since I did not want to write anything. :) Well I guess someone voted for me since I won! I was chosen to be the Certificated Employee of the Month for the month of January and was recognized at the board meeting last night!

The principal got up and read a whole page on the "wonderful" things I do at work. It was cool and my mom was able to go with me as well. We even took a picture. The board took a picture along with my mom. :)

It was a great honor, yet the one thing I could only think of is "Who picked me?". Oh well I guess I'll never know, but it was nice to be recognized for all that I do.

Back to the Grind!

Well the first couple of days back have been great so far. The students are paying more attention and are willing to learn and apply themselves. Let's just hope this lasts more than this week! I have been busy once again, but I actually left work one day this week before 4:30!!! If you know me at all this is a HUGE improvement! I am hoping both my positivie attitude and the students' positive attitude lasts for a very long time!
