Who’s that girl?

August 26, 2008 at 6:15 am 8 comments

     An Angel has landed upon us. She is well disguised, with hair done, make-up on and wearing high-heeled shoes, but no wings. We know they are there, however – just hidden. She has made comments such as: “I want to make sure C is able to have the same snacks as everyone else;” “C, I know having the bigger box of crayons is important to you, and it’s not as important to some kids, so I think you should bring the bigger box;” and, “I moved his desk so he could see better, but I also moved the nice girl next to him along with him so he could continue to sit by her.”

     I’m pretty sure she is descended from a cross between a fairy godmother and Mary Poppins. C can barely say her name without a salacious little grin forming on his lips. He wants to check out books about her favorite flowers at the library so he’ll know more about them. We had to drive by her house last weekend so he could see her street. He was thrilled to know we can almost see her house from ours, and I picture him peeking out his window after lights out in an attempt to see if the lights are still on in her house.

     Mom’s not immune either; I have the feeling that this Angel is thinking about him after hours, wondering what she can do to further his enjoyment and learning. She patiently listened to all of his questions on the preview day, which wins major points in my book. Every once in awhile, someone really special comes into C’s life, and for that I am eternally grateful. She seems to get him, enjoy him and challenge him, which is difficult to wrap up all into one person.

     In case you haven’t guessed, Miss Angel, whose real name is Mrs. B., is C’s teacher in 2nd grade. But it may as well be Heaven to C.

    Seriously, I said that exact same thing today….can she just follow him through high school, ya’ think???? Or we could just hold him back…forever. LOL!

    YEAH!! TC’s new teacher has sent such great notes home each day. I told my daughter, “I think I love this woman!”

    YIPEEE! The teacher makes all the difference, don’t you think? It can either make or break the experience for our kids. Glad you caught a good one!

    […] the spot, and now she is the delightful “Angel,” Mrs. B., as previously discussed (see here). Shyly, almost circling the ground with his toe as he looked at the floor, he asked her what he […]
