Open house at a school is interesting. Tonight, I'll get to meet parents who want the best for their kids and kids who can't wait to get their lockers. The differences between parent and child priorities can be diverse. Lockers vs. Class curriculum. Best friends vs. Keep my child away from ____________. I like it. It's good to see the parent-student dynamic in action. Oft times, parents are the ones most interested in the new teachers. We meet and greet and answer questions about our class while students are running around with their friends. Monday is the real meeting of the students.
Today is about getting the room ready. Cleaning and organizing. What to put on the walls and what to leave for later.
