2 September 2008 - Labor Day - USA
So I have met the kids -- 3rd graders. How are we going to make this work? The 12th graders will be so bored they will do something stupid to embarrass me -- don't know if we should be doing this -- this will be the first impression these kids and this teacher will have of the United States. So I will write Tyrone:
"It was fun to talk to you and your kids on Monday.
Do you teach any high school classes? If so, I would like to have my kids blog with them also.
Have a good day!"
And his reply:
You will see as I go on that my fears were ungrounded. My seniors loved meeting the younger students, loved talking with Tyrone, and the girls were flattered by the admiring remarks of the 3rd graders.
