My Friday student wasn’t able to attend class three a couple of weeks ago. In order to make up the classes, I had to get a little bit creative. Collectively, and by that I mean parent and teacher, we decided that I would come to the house and teach the last two classes over two hours on Saturday February 15th. It worked out surprisingly well. And we managed to finish the srory. I was a bit surprised because my student asked me if I’d be willing to type the story out for her. Because, “I can’t really read grown up writing all that well.” I hope that wasn’t a comment on my penmanship, otherwise Aquinas Montessori, I think you better give my parents their money back. So, just as I agreed to hand write the story for her, I also agreed to type it out for her as well. I think you all will agree that I’d better not make a habit of either writing long hand or typing out the story. But just this once…what’s the harm?
The story is an amazing tale of the power of the human spirit and the triumph of man against his greedier instincts. It’s not really all that highbrow, but I’m the grown up and can attach a deeper meaning if I want to. If my students give me their permission, maybe I’ll post the stories to the blog. Right, next up, we are back in session with the thursdays, hijinks and hilarity abound in our next inkreadable installment. Stay tuned.
