Meet the Teacher

We went to Conner's school the other day to check the class list postings and see who his new teacher would be. There were two 1st grade teachers that he knows and was hoping for. So he found his name...and yes! Mrs. Halford it is!Last year, some of the kindergarteners were assigned a 1st grade reading buddy, and got to go read with the big 1st graders once a week. It turns out, Mrs. Halford was the class that Conner went to for that so he already knows her.

Then we went to Meet the Teacher last night. We took all of Conner's school supplies,

found his desk, got his supply box and the teacher's cabinet all loaded up, filled out some paperwork, and got a couple of minutes to meet Mrs. Halford. I love that we get to do this. I can put a face with the teacher's name, and envision his classroom and exactly where he's sitting when I think about him during the day. And, we got to see a lot of the other kids in his class, so I know who he'll be playing with.

We're looking forward to a great year, Conner is so excited and can't wait to get it started on Tuesday!

Meet the teacher IS a great idea...and as a teacher, I love the part that you get school supplies delivered and paper work finished PRIOR to class beginning...and WE too get to put a name with faces and parents with children...Just a good idea!
