For Better or For Worse #8: Terrific Teachers

Have you ever felt like someone really, really really cares?

Well, with our principal and our teachers, we don’t just feel it. We know it.

One day, early on this year (on the day of Mom’s biopsy to be exact) Bayla and I both ended up in the office. After Bayla and her classmate had left, Mme. Watson-Senecal (our principal) kept me in the room for further discussion. I told her that Bayla and I might be stressed because of Mom’s biopsy. Mme. Watson-Senecal and Mme. Flanagan (our vice-principal) were amazingly understanding.

A month later, Mom, Dad, Mme. Watson-Senecal, Mme. Flanagan, Mrs. Dubois, Mme. Morin  and Mme. Pascale were seated in the principal’s office discussing how to best help us with the situation as we patiently but nervously sat outside.

Seven months later, our teachers are still helping us immensely with all these wonderful projects to keep our minds off anything that might bother us.

We feel so thankful for our teachers.

    Hey Lucy, it's so wonderful to hear that the teachers at your school are so thoughtful and caring. It's so important to let people know what's going on, it helps them know how to help you.

    Was great seeing you & Bayla yesterday! Give your mom & dad and Phaedra a hug from us.

    Do you ever take Phaedra to the dog park at Landsdowne? We are taking Lucky there today around 11 because Owen has a baseball practice.

    Love Caroline
