|From last weekend.. before the stomach flu from hell hit us both =P|
I may not be a teacher, but the beginning of the school year is still of full new beginnings and lots of hectic moments because I am a pediatric occupational therapist and work at a special education school.
Truth is, this year feels a bit more hectic than previous years. There are lots of new students, lots of reports to complete, I am helping out the teachers and staff more than I have in the past, and well that stomach flu I had over the weekend kinda kicked the crap out of me.
It's so easy to get wrapped up in the madness that is the first week of school. Yesterday I left work feeling exhausted (and cough bruised), but today something changed. I was in my office working with one of my favorite older students... yes, I know I'm not supposed to have favorites =P
I am so so lucky.
Lucky to have a job where I can play Jenga because it helps a sweet kid with her fine motor and visual skills.
Lucky to have an office that is quiet, but where I can play silly music if I want too.
Lucky to have the freedom to plan the type of treatment sessions I want to plan.
Lucky to be around such great yet challenging kids that teach me so much.
Lucky to work in an environment that is so supportive.
Lucky to have job that I really love.
Kinda awesome right? =)
