Student of the Month

Well there was no outside assembly today due to inclement weather...it was 68 this morning. This town and the gang at her school basically shut down if it gets down below 75. As a general (albeit totally stereotypical) rule, the hispanic community in this town can in no way take any cold. at all. whatsoever. My very good friend, who happens to be Cuban herself, laughs at this and agrees with me.

So we were left with the principal, Dr Morales, making announcements over the PA. Taylor shared her spotlight grudgingly with John Paul, another student in her class. Here you can see Mrs. Madula pinning the award on T.
She was so very proud.

Her mother was even prouder.

When I picked T up from aftercare, which was being overseen by her old PreK teacher and her art teacher both agreed (a little too whole heartedly in my opinion) that T has come such a long, long way from the beginning of last year.

I'm not quite sure what they mean!

So, in celebration, we're off to T's favorite store, Nordstrom's, for dinner. Again.

At least this time I have the foresight not to lecture her about not buying anything.

Forewarned is forearmed. I have it on excellent authority that a big sale is going on. Whoo Hoo!

As a teacher for "many" years YOU don't need to be perfect to be have good behavior! Kudos to Taylor! And thanks for making her feel so special!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
