Re: I know I am appreciated

I know when I am appreciated when students who are transferring
come by to say good-bye or give me a farewell hug even though they
are not in my classes anymore. I can live with the fact that my
principle never says thank you. She believes "we are all professionals
and should be doing a good job without praise." Well, that's her
problem. I make sure I thank her when she does something, I don't
want her philosophy to rub off on me. We should praise our kids often
and model the behavior we expect from others. We get what we give.
