Meet the Teacher
Met my students last night, a whole array of them...the ones with their parents, the ones with friends, the ones with aunts, uncles, tiny grandma, and pretty little nieces all dressed in pink, okay not the uncle!, but it was sweet, and the bold one braving the eighth grade classroom alone. They were all lovely and promising. Some were taller you could tell, others confident, some knew they were creative while others did not, one was texting while meeting me so I pretended I texted him back and made him laugh. We talked about technology, writing and meeting the standard and way beyond, reading our novels, working with new friends. Had to talk about The Summer Reading Assignment and let them know they had choices and still some time. Whew! Loved meeting them all.
There was a promise in their eyes and a promise in mine.
