I just wanted to acknowledge all the people in the past and present who have gone out of their way to make this year a success for me. Many folks have gone out of their way with words of encouragement in regards to this school year and their words of encouragement have meant A LOT to me. I am a words of affirmation type personality--translation: when people compliment me or say nice things to me, I feel really, really good about what I've been doing, and I have been getting this from plenty of caring and generous folks.
Oh, and if you're wondering, I am 95% sure I will have my job for next year. This isn't completely official yet, but according to another teacher hired by TLEC who is in a similar position as I, I will have my job. This, needless to say, is a big blessing to Gretchen and I. I really enjoy my caseload of students, and have made a lot of progress with them, and I hope that we can continue to work together long enough to see them graduate.
Thanks again everyone!
