Ever heard of a Plog? Beth Woof, an administrator in our district, created it. She calls is a personal learning log and you can visit it here. It’s lovely how Beth shares what she’s grateful for, so I’m taking a leaf from her book.
Today, I’m grateful for an executive assistant who makes me laugh and supports me. I’m grateful for the senior team colleagues who I can count on to give me advice or coach me when needed.
I’m grateful for educators who think about what their kids need every single day. I’m impressed by those formal and informal leaders in our schools and workplaces who take risks to try something new, nudge a friend along or admit what they don’t know and work to learn it.
I’m grateful for the smiles that light up on little kids’ faces when the principal walks into a room. I’m grateful for a teacher candidate in a school I visited who remembers me teaching them in grade 6, 7 and 8.
I’m grateful for principals and vice principals who stay late to see the Sears Drama Festival Play or the Basketball Championship or the French Café.
That was the day I had. My job is pretty great.
