The observation of your classroom today was so very interesting. It was incredible to to see all the children, not only my own, so incredibly focused, calm, and busy at work in the classroom. They were like a swarm of busy bees…each knowing their individual parts while also knowing when to pull together as a team to clean up and help each other out. The sense of Independence, pride, respect, order, and caring these little ones exhibited during my visit was fulfilling to watch as a parent. I sat and watched in amazement as the children selected their projects, concentrated and completed their tasks, and then put things exactly back in their proper places with such care. At one point during the observation, Fiona was at the sink cleaning her supplies after painting….it took her a long time to accomplish her task but she kept at it. I couldn’t help but notice the pride she took and the sense of accomplishment she felt after completing the simplest of tasks. It was a proud moment for me as a parent to see the delight in her face after she completed her work and to see her so confident and comfortable within your classroom. The patients and attention you provide to the students is impressive. The environment you provide within your classroom allows for not only the teaching of academics and the Spanish language, but the reinforcement of values. I wanted to tell you how pleased I am to see Fiona grow and learn in such a stimulating environment. Thanks again.
