I just want to share that this week has been intense. Monday I worked 14 hours because the school had a coffee house night to share all of the fine arts that we do at school. It was 2.5 hours of wonderful music, acting, and sharing by the students.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were 12 hour days. Two of the days ended with all the staff sitting talking about students and how to help them as well as planning projects for next week. Today we had a Sure Council meeting to discuss school needs and business. I can only imagine what tomorrow holds. I know I will be there at 7am to share ideas and help students learn.
The reason I share about the long hours is not to complain. I share my story because I love what I do. One of the best things is that I love the staff that I work with. I have been in other jobs where I am not challenged, I don’t get along with other staff, and I do my business and leave. However, this place is different.
The staff I work with is my family. I go home to an empty house and a television at night. I love being with my coworkers visiting and working. I love being with my students teaching AND learning right along with them. I’m challenged everyday, and I love it.
So, as I get ready to head to bed after writing this on my Galaxy Tab, I want to say thank you to the wonderful staff, students, and parents at Turning Point Learning Center for the great first three quarters that I have had. I hope everyone can have such a great environment to work in.
