Parkers Teacher Just Called
If you are a parent you know how scary it is to hear the phone ring and see the schools number on the other end> A thousand images / thoughts flit through your head. Is he Hurt? Didn't he get to school? Has he been kidnapped. OMG what was he wearing this morning? What has he done this time?... just a few that went through my head this AM.
The school system here is amazing. Its so nice. The teachers CARE about the kids. Really Really care. They aren't afraid to hug the new kid starting the new school nid year. They Aren't afraid to teach religion IN the school They Care and it shows in a million little ways . Like today.
Parkers teacher was calling to make sure I wasn't worried about Parker failing grade one. It was a possibillity you know. He started mid year in grade one here, he knew notheing, he couldnt read , he couldnt write, he dodnt know his ABC's by sight. Now, he knows all of that and more, he can tell time on a clock with hands ! for heavens sake I still can't do that!
seriously, I never learned how.
But this morning His teacher called because she had been out of the school the past week and wanted to know how his week had gone. She worried that he was worried that I was worried.
So now I am not worried and will tell him so , which will hopefully stop his worries. All i need is for him to get an ulcer !
