Year of the Sassy yet Observant student



I post this picture as a tribute to the sassy that is you, Miss. A.  Yes, that is the boy solider in the back ground from The Walking Dead.  That is a bloody wound on his chest from a crazy farmer shooting him whilst out hunting the zombies.  Zombies are fo realz  - you will be super thankful someday when they plague the planet and yo dad and I are completely prepared.

Back to "the Sassy".  I wrote to Mrs. Heath yesterday to share the wonderful stories that are being shared at our dinner table.  Here is the email and the response:

Shelley,


I have to share with you some of the lovely conversations from our dinner table.  Yesterday Nathan and I asked Ava what she was learning in school.  Her reply:

"Ahh it's crazy.  I'm the only one that knows EVERYTHING.  I even know what my teacher is thinking."

Ms. Margerum is great.  Ava is happy and I would say just a bit confident.


Tonight Ellie leaned on her elbows and said, 

"I've been assigned all of the teachers for my subjects now.  My teachers are..............(during this silence I was expecting her to convey the difficulty of 5th grade)....................so nice.  Mr. Collins is really good at eye contact."

I was not expecting eye contact to be the trait that makes such a large impact on Ellie.  Mrs. Griego is such a perfect fit for her!

Thanks for all that you do!
