I love my Job & Ellen’s Dance Dare

I Love My Job

Yes, ok – there are times every day when I am frustrated and want to cry or scream but at the end of the day when I stop and think about what happened that day, it is usually a positive that ends up winning over the negative(s)!
My students are supportive of each other & love to have fun. They are extremely giving and strive to help their community. They are brave and not afraid to stand up for themselves or what they believe in.*
Ellen Degeneres is currently daring people to go up behind another person and dance without them knowing it. One of my co-workers heard this dare and decided to take it a step further and have one of our students dance behind our principal while he was talking during our daily Morning Meeting that we start the day off with. This teacher told all of the other teachers who then warned their students (the day before) what was going to happen so that the kids ignored the student dancing behind our amazing principal. You just need to see this to believe it…
Β and that summarizes why I love my job – I have an amazing boss, great co-workers, and fun students!
.
* yes, every child is different and I know there are exceptions to each one of these statements – but I am making generalizations here!
I am grateful for each of my students and the lessons they teach me every day as I teach them. Sometimes they teach me patience, other times they teach me when to use commas or spell things – but I love them in their own individual ways!

I love my Job & Ellen’s Dance Dare — 10 Comments

  1. I’m not sure what I’m more impressed with A) your students who were amazingly well behaved or B) you have Morning Meetings with that many kids.

  2. Aww, Miss Ring!! But I think there should be a comma after patience… πŸ™‚

  3. That is awesome. One question, how old is your principal? He looks like a baby (say me, the 27 year old) Kudos for the girl for having the guts to dance in front of everyone. I certainly wouldn’t have done it at that age.

  4. Wow! So so awesome! Do you know whether Ellen aired the video?! I am also amazed that the students were so well behaved! How absolutely fantastic! And also, I have to say I really like the idea of morning meetings/announcements with the whole school. My school is small so I can see something like that being done, at least with the elementary school.

    Today was one of those days where I was also thinking, I love my job, so it’s perfect that I read this post today πŸ˜€

    • I have not hear if she aired this or not actually…

      My kids blow my mind every day, even when I start to get frustrated or think about “issues” another child comes along and does/says something that makes it all ok again!

      We are a “Leader in Me” school – it is an International Leadership System developed by Steven Covey and the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” I love it, you should check it out! http://www.theleaderinme.org/
