My Village People

Yesterday, some coworkers and I went to St. Louis to see Gerry Brooks. For those of you who don't know him, click on this link and watch some of his videos on YouTube. He describes teachers' lives perfectly, and he's hilarious. We had so much fun.

Yesterday was unique because we got to get away from the school and just relax. We rarely get to just talk and laugh with each other, because we are so busy working together. We work so hard all day at school and at the end of the day, we are exhausted. We don't have a lot of time to just sit and visit. We never get time to enjoy a meal together. Lunch in the lounge isn't enjoying a meal together. That's called "scarfing down a few bites before racing back to your room to prepare for the afternoon."

If I didn't have the amazing coworkers that I have, I couldn't do the job that I do. It really does take a village to get through every single day. We all pitch in and help each other. When I go to school, I know that I have an entire building of people behind me to help out no matter what. That's how I know every day will be a good day. Everything from words of encouragement to a tea at lunch can get me through a day. It might be as simple as a treat in my mailbox to an offer to help me in the hall. We all pitch in to help each other. No one ever complains about helping, and no one ever thinks twice. 

Thank you to each of my coworkers for everything you do for me every day. A special thank you to my coworkers for an outstanding day out yesterday. It was a blast to get to spend time with all of you outside of the school. I'm ready to plan another outing!
