My Son’s 5th Grade Teacher is…

September 9, 2012


I don’t mean to boast, but last night I read the welcome letter from my son’s teacher and this woman sounds pretty awesome. The first thing that came to mind was Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus.

Ms. M is average height and slim, has a big smile and bright eyes. She just oozes positive energy. But back to this letter. At the top was a bunch of nicey, nicey stuff…I’m engaged to the love of my life…blah blah…previously taught in Australia, Canada, New Zealand…blah blah…love running and swimming…and then she hits us with: “The most rewarding of all would be my climb to Base Camp Everest” WHAT? How did a little thing like you make it up there without blowing away?!

I don’t know the answer, but I can’t wait for Big K to come home and tell me all about her. I can just imagine the kids being captivated by her life stories. I’m sure the kids will find inspiration and enthusiasm for life as they hear her talk about her travels and accomplishments.

She is our very own Ms. Frizzle. This is going to be a good year, I can’t wait!

  1. This sounds like the sort of teacher our ten year old girl would like!
    May I ask which school she teaches at and whether you have had good experiences there?
    We are moving to Dubai from Sydney in about two months with a ten year old girl and a thirteen year old boy. Feeling a bit spun out about schools!

  2. Hi Kitty. Thanks for visiting my blog. Settling in with schools is one of the most stressful parts of moving to Dubai. We are at Universal American School which is in Festival City. They do a dual curriculum there…primary and secondary grades use the IB curriculum but the junior high does an American curriculum.

    I’m not sure why they do it like this, kind of weird in my opinion.

    Which schools are you looking at?
