Grateful for Note

The first few weeks of the school year have been stressful as I get used to teaching a combined class, work on a curriculum that is unfamilier to me, and plan out my lessons. Last week one of my grade 1 students gave me a note near the end of the day that made all my hard work worthwhile.

“J’aime être dans ta classe!” (I love to be in your class). These words touched my heart – as did the words the principal had penned as a thank you for all I had done so far. These notes are my motivation as I push through my fatigue and create a classroom environment that will make both me and the children in my class happy.

What have you been grateful for this week?

Last week Lavender Ladi was greateful for late summer days.

(Join me and share something that you have been grateful for in the past week. Link up with my post and feel free to use the badge my daughter created. )

I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life. Please remember to send me a pingback so that I know you have participated.

  1. I don’t know how to send you a pingback but one more thing I’m grateful for is your reminder to spend some time with gratitude each week. Perfect timing for me to come across your gratitude project.

  2. Those words are precious, Colline. Beginning each new job has its own set of stresses and teaching especially can bring its share of up days and down days. If you haven’t done so already, I suggest you collect these notes and letters and compile them into a book, e.g. a notebook, scrapbook or display folder, and any time you begin to question the value of your work, get the book out and remind yourself of the positive influence you are having.
