I cannot put into words how I felt today. It really was like I was a Disney World, that is how excited I was all day. These are a few random thoughts from today.
I had the privilege of meeting about 75 bright and shiny smiling faces today!
My morning began with the headmaster leading a group of 8th graders in prayer during homeroom. My face hurts from smiling and my head hurts from trying to wrap my brain around the fact that there are schools out there, like this, that are “old school” when it comes to procedures and philosophies. I truly admire the parents for knowing what they want in their child’s education and seeking it out.
And then there is the staff. Like almost all the teachers I know, they are excellent at what they do. The difference is, at Calvary, the teacher is the expert (not the state) and does what is best for the student. Novel concept. I am seriously having a hard time keeping my creativity from exploding everywhere. My team leader is awesome. Everything I ask, she just blows it off…”Of course you can do that!”
The headmaster went around and took pictures of each new student and sent an email to the parents with a short message about their child’s day at Calvary. I obviously received 2 emails and in both, the girls have huge grins.
My room is getting there. It will be a work in progress for the next few weeks.
