PROJECT GRATITUDE DAY 61  I am thankful that I’m learning how to be more assertive and confident in my abilities as a teacher despite angry parents who call me at home and email me in the middle of the night and a bitter assistant who constantly questions my authority.   I am thankful that I have a close working relationship with my boss, who supports every decision I make and encourages me every step of the way (and is working on hiring me a new assistant).   And I am thankful for the little girl who ran over to me at recess today, hugged my legs, and exclaimed, “You’re the best teacher I’ve ever had!!!  I love you.”

  1. I have always said the reason I would not choose to become a teacher is the behavior of the parents. Sounds like that little girl knows what's what, though, and that's the important thing.

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by Emma's Lunch and leaving such a nice comment ๐Ÿ™‚
