Being a teacher, I know that teachers invest a lot of time, energy, emotion, sweat, etc. into their students and that often it goes unnoticed and unappreciated. So I attempt to be the parent to my daughter’s teachers that I think I would like to have in my classroom. The problem is that like every thing in my life I tend to do it to the extreme.
Because of that, I think my daughter’s teachers tend to fear that I don’t think they are doing a job that I am happy with. When in all honesty nothing could be further from the truth. So in the new way of healthy living that I am trying to maintain in my life, with the start of this new school year, I am trying to take about a 1,000 steps back and be that typical classroom parent.
We are 21 days into the school year and I have only been to the classroom once and send 2 emails- one to let her know that I was changing how my daughter was going home and the second to find out if I could place a book order online.
No elliptical or jog tonight due to open house.
