Our Monday night meeting at the school to "meet the teacher" ended up being quite the interesting evening. I entered the school as just a parent and came out as one of six members of the Governing Board within the school. I guess it would compare a lot to the PTA in the states. How did this happen? Apparently, I raised my hand when the principle asked if there was anyone else, something I had always tried to avoid in grade school, interested in going through the election process. Apparently, I then made a speech, and was voted in as a new board member. Obviously, I was coherent for all of this and I am very interested in seeing what the we will be working on this school year.
Cici and Nini's teacher is so cute and wonderful and you can tell she loves to teach! Craig sat in Nini's desk and I sat in Cici's as we listened to her presentation. After it was finished, we pulled out the girl's journals that they write in everyday and wrote a little "I love you" not in them that they could find the next day!
Have you "meet the teacher" yet?
Are you on a school board or PTA?
