Last night I watched parents walk their children through school campus to help them find their classes--at 6:30 pm at night. These are parents that are so exciting about their chld starting high school but work to late to come to the regular orientation and tours. I am fortunate to work in a community that respects school so much. My hope is that I can help them understand its workings and empower them to make sure the school is serving them as equitably as possible; students and parents alike.
I am drinking my protein shake and trying to imagine what all my yearlong friends faces are going to look like. Can I learn 120 names today? Probably not, wish me luck!
