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”
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.
