It Takes a Village…

This afternoon I attended a monthly meeting for the education association I belong to. I happened to be sitting with three teachers from another elementary school in our district.  They were DJ’s 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th grade teachers. (He was lucky enough to have one of them twice.)

All of them had seen on Facebook that he had been accepted into college and were so happy for him. One of them told me it made her feel old.  I said, “tell me about it!!!”

I began to think about all of the teachers he has had in his “school career.” I am fortunate that I have been able to work with many of them and get to know them beyond just their “teacher role” and I know that DJ has been very lucky to have had all of them.  From Mrs. Lerner in Kindergarten to Mr. Camp at his high-school.  Each one of them is responsible for shaping him into the person that he is today and I am grateful to all of them.
