…dropped in at Bain Middle School for a College Crusade event. What a great opportunity for our students and their families.
…set on a panel at URI for student teachers to discuss interviewing and how to land their first teaching position. These future teachers were so enthusiastic and wanting to work with students and families.
…visited Orchard Farms and stopped in the kindergarten. The students told me their two favorite words this week: awesome and sparkly. Indeed, they are awesome kids!
…had a meeting at Hope Highlands and then visited the kindergarten and first grade rooms. In kindergarten students were reading with partners and reviewing word lists. Two youngsters shared with me they had learned to read 23 words and were justifiably proud. The first graders were all working really hard at math and at spelling.
…then I ran into Mrs. Macera’s fifth grade class returning from physical education class. We talked about the robo calls I make to announce “no school due to snow” calls. I showed them the app I use on my iPhone to make the calls. They asked interesting questions and were absolutely delightful.
