Day 55- Parents

My parents are pretty darn great.  When I got home from school today, I found a package from my mom waiting for me.  Imagine my delight when I opened it and found that it was full of stickers (even some scratch and sniff!).  What a great surprise :)  This is a gift that will keep on giving to my students and me for weeks to come...

I traveled back to school an hour later for my first experience with parent teacher conferences.  I wasn't totally sure what to expect, but the night went really well.  The parents we saw tonight were cute and sweet and funny and endearing.  There was a mom with the most adorable southern accent.  There were a few couples with kids who are spitting images of them, and we didn't even have to ask who they belong to.  There were parents who asked for advice and for help, and there were parents who were there admittedly just to hear once again from eight different teachers what a wonderful job they have done in producing children.  It warmed my heart to see so many parents take time out of their schedules to show genuine interest in their children.  I can only hope tomorrow will go just as well.


Thank you, parents, you made my day.
