Whew, what a week! Back to work after 3 weeks off was tough, but no panic attacks so I’m thinking it’s a win. Then, the tragedy at the Capitol. I thought the images were of some other country. I could have never imagined such an act of sedition. I’m thankful it ended relatively quickly, but it was tragic that a woman died in those few hours. I hope this country will begin to recover soon. I don’t know how much more of this nightmare we all can handle.
I had an appointment with my audiologist on Wednesday to get an adjustment to my hearing aids. I was really having issues with my right ear and that made me nervous because THAT is my good ear. If I was losing hearing in that ear, I was gonna be super upset. Thankfully, it was a simple fix and nothing to do with my hearing at all. What a relief!
Friday was my students’ reward day (it was suppose to be the Friday before Christmas, but we got shut down). They earn rewards for meeting and exceeding their estimated progress on a standardized reading and math probe. They can earn chips, soda, ice cream, and candy for our movie day. Because most of our kids are low income, these aren’t treats they get often. Normally, I would be a little uncomfortable with so much junk food as a reward, but its a treat for them and they respond very well. Nearly every kid earned all 4 rewards for above target scores.
I’m hoping next week brings another week of no panic attacks. I have an IEP meeting Monday and an RTI meeting Tuesday, and both of those can cause my anxiety to spike. Fingers crossed for a low key week.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
