School is in 2 weeks

Wow! The summer has flown by. Buying new folders, pencils, lists from the school with all we need, new lunch boxes and so much more. Madison starts school in 2 weeks. I can't believe it. Now, I have to fit ALOT in 2 weeks. She is going into the 4th grade. We find out this week who she got for a teacher. Why is it so important to find out our teacher before registration? When I was in school you didnt know until registration day. Now we find out 2 weeks in advanced and some know before this. Parents are so serious about who they get. They can even deny a teacher. If you ask me teachers dont have near the respect they used to and very under paid. I know Madison has had some great teachers. Her 1st grade teacher was the best. She could handle Madison and look at her a certain way and Madison well, would sit down and melt. She respected Mrs. G.(I will call her).
I never got a call, complaint or even a pep talk. She would always say Madison is going to do well in life, I have seen all kinds and she will make it. She never said a bad thing to me at least about her. To this day when we see Mrs. G I cant help but smile she brings joy to these kids face and she really cares about them. Madison adores her and has to hug her everytime we see her. I hope we get a certain teacher this year, but if we dont...I wont flip out, stess over it or even worry, Madison can hold her own now she is strong, free willed and has been taught by a great teacher..Mrs. G.
Maybe Miller will get her when its his turn. Wouldnt that be a great thing.
Enjoy your last couple of weeks in the sun everyone...its almost over....

Our school starts in 2 weeks as well. We have a meet your teacher night the Monday before school starts and that is when we get to find out who they have. The parents at our school are very serious about it, too. However, we can't deny a teacher. They are very meticulous in the placement of the kids and will only move children if after some time in the classroom they are not doing well or if the parent just has a problem with the teacher. Most of the time at our school the younger siblings will get who the older child in that particular grade. I'm looking forward to seeing if my son gets the kindergarten teacher Emily had...I hope so! Good luck with school!!

School starts in less than a month for us, and I'm just hoping that Jasmine gets a good teacher. She lucked out with her kindergarten and her first grade teachers, they were amazing ladies, very fair, very good teachers and until this day Jasmine is just smitten with them :)

Good luck with school, let us know how the first day went, and share some pics :)

Thank you for your kind words about teachers. My daughter, Mandy, just finished her first year of teaching - third grade. I am in complete awe at how hard she works, the endless hours and the money she spends out of her own budget to make things nice for her kids. She even buys school supplies for some of them. So it's nice to know there are a few people out there who really appreciate teachers like Mandy.

Hi, I don't believe I made it over here the other day, after you enjoyed my sunset pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog and come back any time.

I've been lucky also. The kids have always had great teachers. One year when my son was in second grade I heard the teacher he got was not very good. Luckily we stayed with her and she turned out the be one of the best teachers we've had. I think because she has a very strong personality, and because she doesn't let the parents push her around, some are uncomfortable with this. I am not, and we worked well together. I wish you luck this year.
