Me: checking MJ’s bookbag I see what appears to be a paper typed by MJ! “ There’s no way he typed this?! I decide to send his teacher a text message asking her who typed the paper.
Ms H (MJ’s teacher and I quote): ” He typed it!!! Picked out the picture too!”
Me: “What?!?!?! Wow. I’m shocked”
Ms. H: “He Researched. Planned. Wrote. Edited. Typed. Emailed it to me. Selected a picture. Took a lot of work but he did it.”
Me: “Wow I’m impressed. So proud of him.”
Ms. H: “He is a rock star!”
This was MJ’s first official typed paper. After that text message conversation I ran upstairs to MJ and gave him a huge hug and kiss. I told him how proud I was of him. He gave me a wide smile. Once again I have to stress the importance of a great teacher. She was able to get him to really work hard and complete this assignment. We are really going to miss her next year. I can only pray that his future teachers live up to his past teachers. Now I will gladly display his paper on the refrigerator. 😀
