Snow Day

Most winters I look forward to a snow day or two, as I am sure most of my students do, but I find myself a little sad at the prospect of no school tomorrow. I am having so much fun this year at Norton High that I actually do not want a day off. My daughter thinks I am a little crazy because she is very excited about having a three day weekend. This is so out of character for me. I even have a sign that hangs in my dining room during the winter months that reads, "Please Snow, I'm a teacher".

I hope that all of my students can find a career that they enjoy as much as I do. It is a wonderful feeling to get up in the morning and be excited about going to work. This year I started a new position and I was a little nervous leaving my comfort zone to try something new, but I am glad I choose this path. I truly believe I am growing. I have been learning so much and I just want to continue to learn more.

Now back to the weather. If the weather people are correct (50-50 shot at that) I do believe we will be home tomorrow so enjoy the snow day. Hopefully this will be our one and only snow day of the year.
