Attitude of Gratitude (30 Day Blogging Challenge #23)

Nov. 23's (belated) prompt:

How did your Attitude of Gratitude work out? - tell us about it.

In a previous post, I was asked to reflect on ways that I could bring an attitude of gratitude to my school or classroom.  In that post, I shared examples of ways that expressing gratitude improves human relationships.

Working as a substitute teacher has offered plenty of opportunities to express gratitude to students that I may not have yet developed a relationship with. Taking a moment to make eye contact with students after class, and identifying something specific that they did to help me out, makes their faces light up just about every time.
