Simple Pleasures

Doing what you’re trained to do feels good! Knowing what to do and following through on it provides a sense of purpose and gives energy to move forward and grow.  Working with people you respect and enjoy on a task that you believe in is deeply satisfying.

Today I met with my group of teachers for our weekly cluster meeting. Just five teachers and me. What a pleasure. No other Master Teachers. No principals. No visiting administrators. Not even our wonderful executive master teacher. Not a single person except the five teachers and me. Talk about a wonderful 60 minutes.

The cluster was pretty uneventful except for the calm I felt. The learning happened. I shared information and tried to provide a context for where we were going. The teachers talked and worked  and together we did what we were supposed to do. And more even. What made it special was the moments being with my teachers working together. What a treat.

It gives me a glimpse of what may be in store in the coming months.

I am grateful for simple pleasures at work like a meeting such as this.
