Annual Review

If you've been a regular reader, you may remember that I had a difficult work year last year. I worked with some pretty demanding principals who treated me like crap.

This year has been SO much better for me. Despite being up 2 schools (4 total) I work with some pretty incredible people. I respect and like my principals this year and I have great working (and in some cases personal) relationships with all of my special education teams.

Today, I had my annual work review with my boss. I was slightly nervous (because of last year), but confident. This year-- I received "excellent" in all areas of work functioning. Her notes and observations from all four of my principals were fantastic and I left with a smile on my face. The fact that I received all "excellents" my first year and all "excellents" this year did not go unnoticed by my boss. I'm happy to see that she realizes that I was just stuck with some crotchety principals last year and that I am an asset to our county.

and in case you were wondering.....
I still wear the exact same outfits, but there are no complaints about my clothing choices this year.
