Yellow is a happy color.
...when Shut-Down Kid is able to complete a worksheet all by himself, turn it in, AND write me a thank you note. I just had to give him a sticker AND a piece of candy. There was no way I was going to let this opportunity slide without positive reinforcement.
...when I teach extraordinarily well, full of energy and excitement, which led to a very hard-working, very chatter-free 6th period.
...when the awesomely l33t PTA provides delicious Italian food for lunch.
...when an old friend says some really kind words. Thanks old friend! =)
I wish I took a picture of the thank you note. Next time.
