    Building Relationships with our Families

    My 30th school year began with a visit from a former student. I had taught her many years ago, and this year I would have the privilege of teaching her child. Although she is now an adult with several degrees behind her name, I remember her well as a young child. She was incredibly creative and was one of those children who was always inventing something. In one of my treasure boxes, I still have artwork from her that was mailed to me in envelopes that she carefully crafted out of pages from a magazine. How she was able to fold it just right so that her preferred images were in just the right place? I’ll never know. But as the recipient, I was struck by this little person whose brain worked in such fascinating ways.
