children work hard at school. mistakes are expected or the child isn't learning anything. that's hard. the perfectionist in most of us hates to make errors. as teachers, it's our job to let parents know their child's strengths and growth areas.
so here's my top 5 from a weekend writing reports:
5. the weather was cold and gray, so it was a good time to be inside.
4. a fireplace
3. hot tea
2. i still ran/walked 5 miles. (hooray for fresh air!)
1. my teaching partner and i met and worked together.
here's to an excellent education for your children.
the beauty of work.
joy to you.
