Day #4 – Words

ImageI am grateful for words – for the ability to use them to convey exactly what I am thinking.  I sent a letter to one of Grant’s teachers in which I described her teaching/communication style as “dismissive intimidation”.  She is not a good teacher and probably not even a very nice person.  I am thankful that I had both the opportunity and the lexicon to let her know that she missed out on the opportunity to make a difference in my kid’s life.  Her loss.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to share through this blog the language of our lives.  Sometimes it is funny.  Sometimes it is a little depressing.  But it is always real.  What a tremendous gift to be able to communicate and stay in touch with so many of you.

  1. wow. I’m so sorry that there is someone teaching who is dismissively intimidating. that should never be a quality in an educator. I am glad you were able to recognize that and address it. you are SUCH an amazing teacher and person, I so hope you were able to make a difference in her!
