For the last two years Samuel had one class each year so our parent/teacher conferences were quick and easy, not too painful.
This year Samuel is taking a full days worth of classes, so I had several teachers to meet and visit. I enjoyed meeting them, putting a face to the name and figuring out how best to help Samuel do well this year.
I visited with David and Daniel's teacher, and she made me smile. She has worked really hard at telling them apart and getting to know their personalities. I can't tell you how much that meant to me. Public school teachers get a bad rap, they have a tough job, but the ones I met last night have the best interest of our students at heart.
Our boys are doing good in school, they've made the transition well and have good grades. So far so good.
