This morning is perfect. Birds chirping, a soft breeze that promises to bring a bit of warm air our way, and a forecast calling for 70 and sunny later today. I go through my morning routines in the classroom. Turn on the lamps, spray a little air freshener, open the windows, fluff the pillows on the couch, sit down with my coffee and plan. Mornings are a quiet time. At least this morning is. In a little bit I’ll sit down with my cluster and reflect on the book we’ve just read as a staff. We’ll discuss the assessments we tried out in the last few months and plan for next year. Yes, next year already!
Maybe it’s because I got a good night’s sleep. Maybe it’s because I’ve been eating more vegetables and walking every day. Maybe it’s because summer is around the corner. Maybe it’s because most days I really do like my job. This morning is perfect.
