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)?
