Wow, I am going to start with the end of your comments...Congratulations!!! Being able to make an impact like that which is leading to an in-service and movement. Wow! And I am happy to know that I helped you with that through previous posts last year.
And that's what I am talking about. It doesn't matter if I have 4 comments or 30...we are both making a difference, but priorities have to come first.
Which reminds me, you said this is your 4th year of teaching. That one parent you have is probably a rare thing, and I could almost give you 100% odds that you won't have one like that next year. However, even I always have one parent that seems skeptical or unsure of me each year. I formally tried devoting tons of energy towards them to "win them over"...but not now. I am here for their kids, my kids, my family, and God. It sounds like you are on the right path Amanda!
So, good luck with your wedding plans, a lighter schedule (good for you on cancelling cheerleading coaching), and a lighter you! Those are such great things that make me happy just hearing about. Living it makes it even better. :)
