In my district, we have off this entire week for Thanksgiving. A few weeks ago, I decided to commit my entire week off to writing on my comps (Its time to bring this overwhelming chore to a close and I only have until the beginning of January to do it). Anyway... I have spent almost every waking hour this week researching and writing.... in fact.... I am writing this post on Thanksgiving morning from the Starbucks down the street from my house (YES!! It is CRAZY, but they are open!!) where I have been working since 6 a.m. this morning.
I tell you all of this to say that this is the reason I am just now getting around to thanking all of your for your kind words and awards this week. Your emails and posts have meant so much to me. At this point, because of my commitment to a week of writing, all I can do is graciously accept your awards. I will have to put the posts for passing the awards on to other bloggers off until next week. Thanks so much to all of you who have emailed me and passed awards onto me this week!!
On this Thanksgiving day, I must say thank you to all of you fellow bloggers out there. You have changed my life and my teaching!! You have inspired me to try new things to be a better teacher. I am so thankful to have all of you in my life!! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!
I am going to finish up the rest of this week writing, but I will be back with all of you next week.... reading your posts and making posts of my own.
