I had a department wide meeting yesterday to celebrate all our schools and people have achieved this year. For part of the morning we were asked to write a thank you note to someone not directly in our own group (as our department is separated into sections).
I ended up getting 5 thank you notes.
The entire Athletics team each wrote me a thank you note as well as one of my coworkers. It was really touching since I’ve basically been running an athletics program since October on top of my regular job. I am shown yet again how loved I am at work and it’s a very nice feeling. I think people genuinely care about me and recognize the work I do. Denver Public Schools may not be perfect, but there are some great people working there.
And then I came home to this little ball of fur:
Sidney put one of his mouse toys on his back and he just sat there, slightly confused. It was pretty funny.
