Making connections SOL#4

We have a new eating spot in town so my husband and I went there for lunch. It's a cute gift shop/restaurant that is owned by a former student of mine and run with help from her family and friends. Lots of our acquaintances had the same idea about eating lunch there so that made it even more enjoyable.

After salad, my husband and I shared a slice of homemade carrot cake and went back to work. The afternoon flew by but I managed to accomplish several tasks. On my way home I stopped in town again to get a couple items from the grocery and ran into some friends. Always working, I ran into a 4th grade teacher and we scheduled a day for me to visit his classroom. I wanted a chance to try out a lesson using field guides to teach students about informational texts. Now I have a reason to finalize the lesson. And the day was not my usual one in which I'm usually working in isolation. It is good to stay connected with family, friends and former coworkers.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day. I love those serendipitous moments that happen when you least expect them, chance meetings with important people!

    1. Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some days I feel that a higher power is orchestrating those chance meetings.

  3. Yep, we rarely shed the persona, especially in a small community where you are more likely to encounter former students and coworkers.
