A new outlook on teaching…

This was my favorite week of school I’ve had in a long time. Last Friday was a school dance. I got to dance Gangnam Style with a group of my students. The turn out was great and the students were great! Monday I helped 6th graders make cupcakes, On Tuesday it was a Poetry Slam. Students sang, read original poetry, and read favorite poems. Other teachers and parents sang spirituals and read their own original poems. So much fun. Then honor society induction on Thursday where I had 8 students see their hard work paid off. Then yesterday was the talent show. My students performed an Irish dance routine, modern dance (think jabbawockeez), and sang beautifully. There were even great skits between acts. It was awesome!

After this year I really needed this to see why I want to stay a teacher! I really started doubting my abilities and resolve, but with the support of my friends and regular “choir rehearsals” I think I will be okay. A new principal, a new school, and a new appreciation of starting the year off strong. We’ll see how it goes…
