One of my colleagues just stopped me in the hall:
"Ms. Hering, I would just love to pick your brain sometime. My students have a lot of needs and as a first-year counselor... well especially with my special needs students I just need ideas. I was talking with Mrs. ____ and she said ' You know who has it going on? She's young but she always seems to have great ideas. Ms. Hering.' "
On Monday one of my Geometry classes informed me of this:
"Mr. ___ is actually teaching. He says ' we have to teach like Ms. Hering now if we want to keep our jobs.' "
Some days I never, EVER want this to end. God is lifting me up today and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to impact my students and those around me who impact students.
1 day until the TFA holiday party and observatory star party.
2 days until dance competition in Oklahoma City with my girls.
5 days until my Stats final that I MUST get a B on to not retake the class, (at the graduate level if I have anything lower than a B I'm required to retake the course.)
8 days until I know for certain if I'm shaving my head (my students need to raise $220 more dollars).
11 days until I see my family!
20 days until I play a show with my little brother and cousin.
