|Professor Boogie trying on his teacher's glasses|
We have been really, really blessed with the teachers Boogie has had. His preschool teachers taught him that God is #1 and he's held that close to his heart for the last two years. Hopefully longer. They have strengthened the strong foundation in Christ that my husband and I have laid down for him.
This year we could not have been happier with his kindergarten teacher. He is a teacher who "gets" his students. He understands them, challenges them, nurtures them. He's given Boogs a great foundation in academics. I spoke to him the other day about next year. With Boogs being on the wait list for the language immersion programs he'll be going back to his current school. I asked Mr. S. about next year's placement. He said he already knows who he wants for Boogs. And as I looked at him and was about to voice my own anxiety he said, "Don't worry, she'll 'get' him." Me: "She'll get him?" Mr. S. "Yes, she'll get him. She has a Boogie, too." And with that little exchange, I felt that Boogs is going where he's supposed to be next year. I feel good about the transition and feel confident that next year will be a good year. At any rate, I'm not worried and that's a good thing :)
Maybe I should have asked if the teacher will "get" me, too ;)
