What a powerful time with parents! We had our parent-teacher conferences this week and decided to meet with the parents of the seniors for a farewell meeting. We talked about the changes over the years, the strengths, the challenges, the victories... Oh wow! So powerful! It was so wonderful to celebrate with parents...with tons of tears...how much partnership between parents and teachers can really be a powerful thing in the life of a child. We had one dad comment..."It's been as good for me as it has been for my son." Seriously...that's from a dad who really engaged in community and partnership and grew himself!!!!!
Fantastic!! These are the days when I love my job. Hehe.
