A friend who trained bus drivers said she told them that you are the first person a child sees each morning and you set their mood for the rest of the day. I don't think Miss Sue ever had to be taught that. It came naturally to her and I know she 's made an impression on "her kids" not just for the rest of each day, but for the rest of their lives.
What a beautiful and very meaningful memorial for Ainsley.
Kudos to Mrs. Strickland on the Pinewood Derby. I had a similar experience with a Blue and Gold Banquet when all the other mothers made all the decorations. One, a decorator, even used expensive props from her own business and rented costumes for the whole den! As it turned out, we won unanimously! All the judges were grandmas and former den mothers who later told me they knew the minute they walked in which scouts played by the rules!
I taught ESL as an adjunct instructor and it was by far the most professionally run organization for which I've ever worked. My then supervisor, Fanny Parris, worked above and beyond to make sure all adjunct instructors were well informed and made to feel like full time faculty. I'm glad to see them growing.
How cool to meet people where they are!
If you get lower than a 2.0, don't you flunk out? Or is that not the case anymore? Can you graduate with a 1.0 average now?
Having left an iPad in a shoestore that sells only geriatric shoes, I was surprised no one turned it in to the store owner. How commendable that Mr. Ayala (Note that I refer to him as an adult) did the right thing. I only hope that whoever took my iPad found it totally useless after the battery wore down.
Some study showed that average kids who were used to working for good grades did better in "real" life than the whiz kids (for whom everything came easy) because they were USED to having to work and continued to do so without question. Maybe some truth to that.
