2nd grade reunion

Third grade is now complete and Jonah is headed into fourth, but there are many of us parents from J’s second grade class who remain in awe of what a great experience our kids had (way back) in the second grade. They had a teacher who built a community, not just a class. They sang and did movement each morning together, on Fridays they recapped their weeks and talked about things they appreciated about the week and each other, they had dance parties, they talked about inclusivity, they held publishing parties whenever they finished a writing unit, and along the way, whether the kids realized it or not, they learned an astonishing amount –both academically and social/emotionally. A small group of us took her out recently to express our ongoing gratitude and to keep her in our lives.
