First Day of Second Grade

This week we are officially in full-fledged school mode. Last Friday we attended a meet the teacher meeting with Emilia. Her assigned teacher, Ms. Rawlings, delivered her baby prematurely at 25 weeks. She is working part-time in order to spend time in the neonatal intensive care unite (NICU). For now Emilia has two half-time teachers and an a room instructor who assists with break up groups for reading and math and is in the classroom the entire day.

We met Ms. Pereira, one of her two teachers at school on Friday/ She is awesome! She is funny, friendly, and has a cool British accent. She has been teaching at APA for 12 years. Almost as long as the school been open. The kids will love having her.

There are several of the same kids in her class this year, but some of her good friends are in other classes. That's the only disappointing thing for Emilia.

All in all, she is excited to go back and has been asking to go to bed by 7pm. Music to my ears!
