Celebration: Proud!

If you were a fly on the wall in my room, you would get dizzy. And exhausted. Things go up, down and sideways. Often.

The way I choose to carry on, is by letting lots of it roll right off (most of the time) and taking time to stop and celebrate the amazing that weaves its way through everything.

So this week, I celebrate PROUD. The beaming smiles and the bursting hearts.

“We are reading all those books together!”

Celebration: Proud

Building challenges on Thursday. “We built this land!”

Celebration: Proud!

“Hey! I can read this book by myself!”

Celebrate: Proud!

“I spelled all of these words by myself!” (* teluskoop is my personal favourite!)

Celebrate: Proud!

“Look Ms. Gelson – there is a heart here too. I spotted it!”

Celebrate: Proud

The smile of a girl reading a book she never thought she’d read independently.

Celebrate: Proud

These proud smiles made my week!

Thank you to Ruth Ayres and the #celebratelu community!

Being part of a community that regularly shares gratitude and celebrations truly transforms my weeks.

  1. Reading your post brought back some sweet memories of time spent in the classroom pre-retirement.
    These are such lucky children to have YOU as their teacher, Carrie!

  2. I so love seeing the wonderful learning happening and the proud, happy faces in your classroom. They bring such a huge smile to my face. I really have to practice that “roll right off” stance when it comes to a few circumstances in my life.
