Curriculum Night!!!!  
I just posted on Facebook about Curriculum Night but I'm limited to 420 characters.

You know me. I'm so freaking verbose.

So yeah, if anyone is looking for a Victoria Secrets model, she's teaching Donovan's kindergarten. She's seriously cute, a real sweetie, does her job well while taking an interest in each kid's learning and loves Donovan.

Direct quote: "He's so precious and well-mannered and polite. I just love him."

So there you go. :) And he of course loves her. I started off the visit by letting her know she was now his new favorite person.

You guessed it. Out came the face tilt and the happy face with the adoring eyes. Still I like her and this is the kind of teacher you want for your kid's first year.

Rowan's 3rd grade teacher reminds me of...oh you'll love this...Mia Farrow. But not Rosemary Baby's Mia, but Woody Allen days' Mia. Still, if she ever gets pregnant and cuts her hair, I'll...well, I'm not exactly sure what I'll do. Squeeing seems childish and inappropriate. But it would be very cool. I like her too. She seems to have a handle on the kids while being pleasant at the same time.

I saw one of her teachers that has been helping Rowan in reading since first grade. We're pretty close now. She was letting me know how well Rowan was doing and that one day, she told Rowan she was so cute and sweet, she wanted to take her home with her.

LOL! Rowan said, 'but I have a home. And mom would come looking for me.'

We both had a good laugh about that.

Because the thought of me, looking for Rowan, bearing down on anyone who would take her, is not really funny, but kind of scary.

You know, like horror movie scary...

I can almost hear the movie trailer guy's voice for the movie. LOL!

Oh! And I mentioned this to sevigny I think. I met the mother of one of Rowan's classmates and she's a female Viggo! I walked into Rowan's classroom and there she was! Sitting in the chair right next to the one I would have to sit in. Our kids share the same table.

She looks at me (and she was wearing this lovely burnt orange sweater, the clone of one I had almost bought and this wonderful scarf - which I had almost worn myself) and says, 'oh hi!'

We chatted politely but it was so hard to look at her for too long, especially in the eyes.

Can a woman be so strikingly handsome that it's hard for you to look at them for too long?

Anywho, a good night all around.

Next up - Griffon!!!

It's so wonderful to find teachers like that, isn't it? The teacher my daughter had last year (for her final year of junior school) was like that. The first week into the year my daughter came home saying she loved her teacher and at the end of the year she was still saying the same thing.

I went in to see her on the last day, a bit tearful as it was the end of ten years of taking children to that school. I thanked her for everything she had done for daughter (especially as the previous year had been awful for her) and told her how daughter's love and respect for her had lasted the whole year. Well, it wasn't long before we were all crying our eyes out and setting other mums off! I know daughter emails her former teacher from time to time and as there was an open evening at her old school last night, she and her friends popped in to see the teachers.

Oh yes and it's even better when they act so naturally that you can believe they don't even think it about themselves.

Yes! It is wonderful! I feel so lucky this year. I think every kindergarten teacher should be like this. It's a good way for the little ones to start and not feel so scared of school.

I'm glad your daughter had the same experience. It really is so important. One of Griffon's teachers last year (his first year of middle school - that would be sixth grade) was a real witch. Griffon had a hell of a time in there. This year, he loves all of his teachers, including the language arts one (which is what this other teach taught). She was the girls' teacher and they loved her and the teacher loved them so she was excited to get another one of mine.

I don't think this mother thinks she's very handsome at all. She has the style and look down, but none of the bitchiness. And she seems to like me. :)

so is that a True Blood icon? Because it actually looks like Jessica Lange right before she heard about the all-you-can-eat Sizzler night. :)

Both of my sons and their wives are teachers, and I know how much they appreciate getting feedback that they've made a difference in the lives of their students.

As well they should! If I think that person in their lives at the moment is someone they like and they can trust, it is more than worth it for me to say something, anything, to let them know. :)
