The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.
the best bits were her reviews in the class room. lots of words like “loving” and “maternal” and they said she has a really good heart. which makes us happy. you can teach classroom skills and classroom manners, but harder to teach kids to be good human beings.
the week began with a orientation meeting with the teachers, a mixer/playdate with the other kids, a school beautification day spent gardening, obligatory school supply shopping, and then — finally — a real first day in the classroom.
