I had to do this one. I began by taking pics of my students hard at work.
Where does the gratitude come in? They're working so diligently and collaboratively. Today, in a class that deals with literature, we were supposed to go over a pretty difficult story by Ghassan Kanafani. I was determined to be hands-off today, so I gave them the task of making a brief presentation on an aspect from the story that I assigned them. Their intended audience? A student from a nearby high school.
Sometimes it goes well. And when that happens, I am very grateful.
Now, what am I grateful for outside the classroom?
The first image would be of our school staff, Rose, Joel, Norma, and Rachel. They are awesome. We have a fabulous dean who is very passionate about student learning. He supports the faculty as if he were a soldier in battle with us. And the support staff makes the world go 'round. I'm not posting their pics, but here is the corridor leading to the school office!
