It’s 8:06pm, my sweats are on and I’m in bed. Today seemed to be too much. I think about how today was a challenging day for my class and fourth-grade team, I’m reflecting on night two of parent teacher conferences, and I’m thinking about all that is unknown.
Just when it feels all too much, I remember how I started my day; telling a student, “you can do it, come on, one foot in front of the other.” When the student didn’t budge, my words changed slightly, “we can do it together, join me, one foot in front of the other.” We did it- we made it to where we needed to be.
We can do it. We got this. One foot in front of the other.
