First day of student teaching!!

I am so proud of Laura! She has worked so hard!! I begged her to let me take her picture on the first day of "school" . . .she is student teaching at a local school (they now call it an internship). She is in the fourth grade class. She was born to be a teacher. When she was a little girl, she would line up all her stuffed animals and dolls and anyone else she could corral . . .and she would mark attendance and make lesson plans and teach them. Now she is doing it in real life!!

The students in her class ask her such funny questions. This morning while we were eating breakfast, she told me a new one. Student: "Miss Elliott - who fixes your hair in the morning?" Laura answered - "Do you mean who combs it and fixes it before I come to school?" The student said, "yes." Laura said, "I fix my own hair. Who fixes yours?" Student: "My mommy." I love it!

I think Laura has learned more about Justin Beiber (is that even how you spell his name?) and other things that fourth graders are interested in. They are always interested in what is in her lunch and her earrings. A friend of ours, Natalie Fry Horne has a business called Knick Nats. She makes these great earrings and we own lots of pairs. One day, one of the fourth grade girls said, "Are you wearing Natalie Horne?" She didn't say, "Are you wearing earrings made by Natalie Horne" or "are you wearing Knick Nats?" She asked. . . "are you wearing Natalie Horne?" (like are you wearing Prada?!!!) Natalie - you are famous!! We are so proud of Laura!!
