I don’t know about you but this week felt like a roller coaster ride for me. I went from working in my classroom, coaching in the evenings to meetings and other appointments. Whew! I can’t believe how fast it went.Tell us about your ride this week. Here is how my week looked:
Exhausted- I had so much to do this week I felt zapped trying to get it all done and not disappoint anyone. I’m really glad that this week is over.
Connecting with Friends- I had a really difficult time contacting Patrick, so that was really frustrating but he finally called me after weeks of being disconnected from me. I also went to the end of the year celebration at church and caught up with a lot of my friends.
Report Cards– I finished my report cards four days early. (Applause) It felt so good to complete the progress reports before the due date. It’s not easy to capture the essence of a child in about 350 words but anytime I am doing progress reports my goal is to convey to the parents that I know and see their child in all of their greatness.
Creating a Mummy Business- One of my clients had an exciting homework assignment. She had to create a mummy business replete with business name, slogan and unique selling point. It was a nice break from inequalities and algebraic equations.
Debbie Allen’s Hot Chocolate Nutcracker- Yesterday I went with my entire school to UCLA Royce Hall to see the student production of The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker. The dancing, customs and the idea of traveling around the world from my seat was amazing. One aspect of the show that made me smile was this little boy, I mean he had to be about six years old but he was working his dance moves like a little Patrick (smile.) I thought that it was cool that his parents recognized his love and ability to dance at such a young age. I could tell from the way that he was dancing that he really loved it. I also liked seeing all the schools from the city share the same cultural experience.
