Week In Review--Teacher Training



MONDAY

Smiling faces in a commons room,
where all the teachers have come to stay.
A pep talk, a powerful presentation,
And I think I'll be okay!

--I. Got. This.

TUESDAY

A mountain of information
that makes my brain feel fluffy.
Policies and handbooks
cause me to cry 'til my eyes are puffy.

--O. Ver. Whelmed.

WEDNESDAY

Lots of hugs from staffers,
manning front office desks.
Grateful for their kind support--
Women loving others is the best.

--I. Have. Faith.

THURSDAY

Bright-colored paper for bulletin boards.
Notebooks to hand my class.
A green leafy plant and a felt-ball garland,
to give my room some sass.

--This. Is. Good.

FRIDAY

What a week, to prepare and learn,
a week to stretch and grow.
A new love for a HARD profession,
that does more than you'll ever know.

--Hug. A. Teacher.

CHANGES!

I once had a bishop--the ecclesiastical leader of my church congregation--tell me that change is good.

We were preparing to move to the city I now live in, and the thought of leaving my beloved neighbors and friends, the community I had lived in for so many years, was devastating to my heart. I was riddled with anxiety and sadness.
