We didn't even put in a teacher recommendation because we simply had no clue. I think our prayers might have been heard and answered because Mason's new teacher seems like a true gem! She called us the night before meet the teacher and I instantly got a good vibe from her. She was as sweet as could be. It made me a little more excited for meet the teacher night...ya know, since I have been in denial this whole time.
When we got to her class she told Mason to pick out any seat that he wanted and to sign his name on the sticky note. He thought it was so cool to be able to pick out his own desk. I'm sure she will re-arrange them at some point, but I know this will make Mason feel so much more comfortable on that first day. Mason's best friend is also in the class and that makes me so happy for them! Mrs. Morgan's class is Dr Seuss themed and is completely adorable.
I feel that all children are different and require specific attention and affection for them to flourish. I will strive to be that for each of my students; an educator who loves each child that walks in her door and gives each of them not only an education, but a passion to learn.That puts my mama heart at so much ease. To have a teacher that recognizes that each child is different is a true blessing! So many schools these days want to confirm the kids into little robots. And the fact that she knows kids need affection...oh man! Yes. All the praise hands. Especially my boy. I know that I must kiss him 9437 times a day and tell him that I love him 22019 times a day. And he's the same way. He does the same to me. Now, I know that she's not going to be kissing him or telling him that she loves him, but I know that she will be loving towards him. She's a Grandmother and you can tell how much she loves kids. Such a blessing.
And while we were eating supper we got a text message from Mrs. Morgan saying how happy she was to have met us and that she's excited to have Mason in her class. I just have such a good feeling about this year. I hope my intuition is right.
I asked Mason his thoughts about meet the teacher night:
What did you think about your new teacher? Very great. She's so sweet.
What did you think about your new classroom? Good. It's big. Actually it's little.
Are you happy that your best friend is in the class? Yes ma'am. Very happy.
What about the school? It's big. I'm afraid I will get lost.
I didn't take my big camera to meet the teacher because it was rainy and nasty and because schools usually have the worst lighting. Well, this school just so happens to have bright white lighting, Ugh! So disappointed I only had my point and shoot now.
I can't believe this is our last weekend before school starts! #holdme
