day 1592 Рgramercy 

i never questioned whether my heart is in the right place cause i know it myself. the holiday card and written notes says it all. this reminds me of why i continue to push through my hectic life to be teaching year after year. the commitment is by no means small, but one that is meaningful to me. i don’t want to give up these kids i’ve trained, some for several months and some seven years. i forget what it’s like to be appreciated for what i do and what i do well. i thought it didn’t bug me, but it actually does and i’m told i should never tolerate or take it from anyone that doesn’t appreciate

day 1370 – handling business

the scope of work i do is often done behind the scenes and not always seen, but i take pride in what i do and doing my job well. my manager shared something with me today that i never expected. apparently my coworkers have been impressed with the way i’ve handled myself and quietly gone about my business. it’s great to be singled out and appreciated for what i do. i think i’m holding myself fine and i’m more than happy to step it up when opportunity arises
