I got a call from the school today. It was from my son's new teacher. I went into immediate "alert" (picture a dog's ears going up) But she said immediately..."This is a happy phone call."
She went on to say, that although she is just getting to know my son? That he is "cooperative, intelligent, witty without being disruptive, and asks insightful questions that lead to interesting discussion."
Okay..she also added that she received a shipment of computers this morning, and she had not a clue what to do with them. grin...she added that he had unpacked, set up, and got five of them "ready to drive" in an hour.
She closed our conversation with this:
"I can't tell you how many awful phone calls I have to make to parents. This one is a joy." and? she said, "It's kids like that, that make me look forward to the teaching again. I only wish I had one of him in each of my classes."
BEAMING....JUST BEAMING....mind if I dance?
Yes, the worries are HEAVY. But the rewards...oh, somebody? pull me back down to earth...soaring, I say, just SOARING WITH PRIDE.
