Today, I almost lost it.
I got this note from a student.
I just couldn't.
Didn't we explore this topic...a LOT?
Didn't I meet with you in small group?
Didn't I make this topic a station?
Didn't you see this on that fancy internet program?
But then it just HIT ME:
How lucky am I that my kids feel comfortable enough to write me notes that they need guidance?
How lucky am I that my kids know what they NEED?
How lucky am I to have to time to build in an extra few minutes to meet with my kids?
And so... I took a deep breath and said, "Alright kid, come see me with some colored pencils, and we'll see what we can do."
Her response, "YES! I KNEW I was next."
1 The weather has been BEAUTIFUL.
2 I've been getting really great sleep lately.
