I was at school today from 7:40am – 8:00pm straight! However, we had a half day of school, woot! We had students for the morning and then parent teacher conferences were from 1-3:00 and 5:30-8. I was in a rush this morning so I ate a Kashi bar on the train for breakfast.
I also ate an unphotographed fun sized Hersheys special dark bar!
I had my post-observation meeting with my principal today; it went well. She really loved my lesson. It’s always nice to get some positive feedback. For lunch I went with trusty old museli.
This was 5oz of nonfat plain Chiobani, 1/4C of oats, a sliced Brauburn apple, and a dash of cinnamon.
During the break I ate a mini-dinner: a mini roll spread with natural peanut butter and some homemade strawberry jelly (A’s mom gave it to us this weekend!).
I had 34 parents come today! I know that doesn’t seem like a lot (I have 85students), but last year I got less than 20. I really enjoyed meeting all the parents; I’ve called every house at least twice this year but that’s different than in person. There was one low point – a mother punched her son in the face in front of me. I don’t really feel comfortable with any more details, but please tell me how would you have dealt with this?
When I finally got back to the Slope I had to stop in at Barnes and Nobel. I needed to buy a condolences card and I set up two students with a special projects and I had to buy the books.
Once home I found a package from my mommy! I am giving every student a book for Christmas this year and she sent me some freebies to get me started.
She also sent this awesome shower gel.
And this adorable mini stuffed turkey!
When I finally got down to dinner I had a bowl of leftover chili (a bit less than 1C) topped with dried coconut and pepitas for crunch.
I have an early day tomorrow so I’ve got to head off to bed. Happy cuddling all!
