A Love Affair

So today was my first day completely on my own.. No boss - and no one looking over my shoulder! Are you wondering how it went? Well this is how it went: I called Brian on my way out of work..
Him: Hello
Me: Hi
Him: what's going on how was your day?
Me: You Should be Jealous
Him: WHY?!?
Me: Beacause I am in looooove with work!!
Seriously, it went soooooo well! I did an awesome job! Such an awesome job I get an email from the Big Wig in the company.. Sweeet...
But even better.. I am really, really, truly connecting with the kids.. which is kinda bad because their stay in the hospital is short! And I hate getting attached and then having them go... But good because they like and trust me! A nurse told me today that one of the kids was talking about me in his group therapy season about how much he liked me and how he wished I was his teacher all year long!! And only after 3 days..... Not bad right?

Lori said...

that is great... and just think the connection that you create with them could alter their perception of teachers and help them re-adjust to their other school

That's so exciting for you! I cannot believe that kid was talking about how much he likes you after only three days.

I think the move was the right choice. And I cannot wait to hear more about it and how you're changing these kids lives!
