Too little too late

If you've been following my blog you'll see that I've felt underappreciated in my current job for a while now.

A few days ago I had an observation (it's called a snapshot observation where people drop in and watch your class for 15 minutes). I went to get my feedback yesterday.

I'm not proud to say I cried at work (again) but this time it was because someone was finally saying to me the things I've been wanting to hear for a long time. I was told, 'you're a great teach', 'you have control of your class' 'you coped really well', 'we really want you to stay'. It's so nice to finally hear what I've believed about my own teaching for long time. However, where was this praise over the last two years?

It's a shame it's finally taken till I am about to leave for people to acknowledge that I'm good at what I do. The main reason I got emotional was because I can finally feel that I am leaving my current workplace with at lease one person thinking that I am a loss to the company, rather than with a big black cloud over my head.
