As you know, this year has been really hard for me professionally. Most days I want to run away from here screaming and never want to come back. Other days I leave feeling neither here nor there. Very rarely do I leave happy.
Today I found out I was nominated for Teacher of the Year for my school. I seriously laughed when I saw it. Me?!?! Angry, bitter, me?
I'm positive I won't actually win it, but still, I'm on the list with teachers that I admire and respect. So that's pretty cool, and kind of makes me feel like I'm not a total waste of space.
Maybe I'll actually leave today kind of happy?
