It’s all worth it….

Well I’ve almost made it through my first week (tomorrow is Friday- that’s close right?!)  After hours and hours of practice going over expectations and routines…I finally feel like we are heading in the right direction – slightly but I’ll take it.

I started a class incentive to help (fingers crossed) with working on our procedures and routines.   We just earn a letter to spell a EXTRA RECESS for our reward.  We’ll see how long it takes. Seemed to work today so once again I’ll take it!

I did get this note today to put everything in perspective.

Made me smile 🙂  
Even though I feel like I’m being really mean, I guess I’m still doing ok!
Hope your week is going well !
