Fate’s Been At Work

Published March 22, 2015 by lynn k scott

On Friday, on our way home, my daughter and I stopped at the grocery store for a couple of items.  Fate made sure I was delayed by reuniting me with someone; my daughter’s first grade teacher.  Ms. B was the teacher who gave me such tremendous support when I pulled my daughter from her first grade class in mid-January (two years ago).  We haven’t seen each other in about a year and a half.

The lil miss and I were chatting, as usual, on our way into the store.  A woman was on her way out.  Next thing I heard was my daughter’s name being called.  There she was Ms. B and my daughter immediately ran into her outstretched arms to receive the big hug Ms. B was waiting to deliver.

We spent the next half hour catching up; standing right outside the entrance to the store.  She told me how often she thinks of us and she’s wanted to see how the lil miss was doing, but just didn’t want to stop by the house.  She was so pleased to hear how well our homeschooling was going.  We brought her up to date on our field trips, what’s she been learning, etc.

She gave me more encouragement.  She told me how the schools are changing.  How so many children are having difficulty with the work and she had to create a homework club.  She did say the school throw out the Common Core testing because so many people are fighting it, but the math is still being taught that ridiculous way.  Even her son in college, who “gets” math, is now having issues.  Her high school daughter had THREE pages of work for one math problem.

It was the pick-me-up I needed.  As I can only join online groups for home school support with my work schedule, being encouraged by someone who truly cares about a child’s educational needs, is priceless.  I am blessed and thankful to have someone like that in my corner.
