Yesterday was our first experience of Parents Evening in our daughter’s school. This is the time that the parents will meet with the teacher and have the one-on-one talk about the overall assessment of our child’s performance and progress in class. Our schedule was 4:45 and there’s only 15 minutes allotted for each parents. At first I thought that I would be the only one who’ll go there for my hubby has been sick for quite a few days now. But good that he’s better and together with my family we went to the school.
When we entered the gate Andrea was so excited that she was running to her classroom but I told her to stop and wait for our turn since it’s just 4:20 pm. And one man, he’s also a father of I guess one of Andréa’s classmate made his way to approach us. He told us that he is the father of Hamza and his son is always talking about Princess. And eventually we introduced ourselves and it’s good to know that my kid is friendly.
Teacher N saw us and told us to get inside the classroom since nobody is there so we started to get to know how our daughter is doing in the school. The teacher showed to us all of Andrea’s work from the start of the school to the latest activity work and we are overjoyed with all the reports of her teacher. She’s doing great in the school. But we are more elated when the teacher told us about her great behavior in the class. We told the teacher that above all we are more concerned about her attitude than the academics because if the child has a rotten behavior then still her being an intellectual is nothing.
And our supposedly 15 minutes meeting ended up to 45 minutes. Teacher N told us that she’s so thankful to us for raising our daughter the right way and it help them a lot especially in their class they are having different kids from different countries thus they have to deal with different cultures. She thanked us that her task of teaching my daughter became easier. And we are more proud of her for that.
In our way out of the classroom another parent greeted us and introduced as Jad’s dad and mom. And they told us that Princess is also one of Jad’s great friends. It’s really heart warming to know that your child is learning especially on human relationships which is for us very important. Again congratulations to our daughter you made us more proud of you. We love you very much
