So in the last two days I've gotten major props from one of my principals and my tech liaison at another school. The principal has recommended me for a promotion to another position in tech. The liaison made sure my boss knew just how much he appreciated my work and what a great job I'd been doing.

Which, as you might guess, makes me feel pretty damned good about my job, my work, my schools and more.

Sometimes getting external recognition is more important than knowing you did a job well. And its alot more likely to result in raises and/or promotions.
