Yesterday was a bad day. It was the worst I've had in a while. I extracted myself from people, did 7.5 miles on the elliptical, got a salad, read a book and went to bed by 8:30.
Today was MUCH better. My lessons went well and the kids were much more on the ball.
In addition to all of this, I (and the other teachers) have noticed a HUGE positive difference with the student for whom I made the Progress Monitoring Sheet this week. The student has been proudly showing the positive notes that have been left on the sheet and I'm doing everything I can to positively reinforce the behavioral change.
I'm very ready for the weekend.
I'm going to be a good liberal by getting bottles on wine and writing letters to my legislators.
