A discouraging, disheartening day can stymie an individual, but a good way to get past that is to focus on the good. There's a lot of good happening in my teaching/learning environment and I need to focus on that rather than the discouraging events.
First, students are generally happy and engaged. This is good.
Next, family members have been very supportive.
After that, the building principal has been supportive and helpful.
And, we've already had a number of great lessons and learning experiences including the Global Cardboard Challenge.
Overall it's been a great start. Events this week signaled a bit of a challenge, but we'll not let that get in our way. Onward.
