Back to School

  

We had Back to School night tonight for two of our kids. I actually really enjoyed this event for several reasons.

I loved seeing all the parents together and running into friends in the halls.

I loved sitting in the spaces where my children spend their days without me and knowing what it looks and feels like.

I liked hearing the voices of their teachers and listening to their tones and listening to what they were trying to communicate. 

I liked comparing the different styles that each teacher presented and wondering if I would enjoy their class every day or not.

I liked walking the path between passing periods to each of the classrooms that my kids visit every day. I could visualize where they are and what they might do.

I enjoyed gathering information and college guidance and learning about what they will be learning this year.

We have a great school and a great, well-connected community and I am thankful for this opportunity.

How do you like your school(s)?

One thought on “Back to School

  1. I’m always amused to “see” what the teachers are really like after I’ve had a few weeks of my kids “assessments” of what they are like. I think it is interesting to see how the teachers behave/perform in front of parents. I definitely think we make them more nervous than the kids! I happy that my kids are in well performing and safe schools. I hope they can find their way through the high pressure and just be good, happy students.
