Doug and Patrice Visit
We may be remote, but we have certainly had some visitors this week! Doug and Patrice Lynch from Portland came to stay with us overnight and observe in the classroom on Thursday. Doug is the head of the Education department at the University of New England. He and his wife make an impressive educational duo so Mr. Finn and I were a little nervous to have them visit. There was nothing to worry about, though, as they were thoroughly impressed with the kids, as all visitors are. They couldn't believe how independent, articulate, and skillful they were, not to mention how well they cooperated with each other, regardless of age. Call me partial, but I have a tendency to bubble over effusively about this group. It was nice to have folks who have spent their entire careers in the classroom feel the same way. Thanks to Doug and Patrice for the big journey and willingness to visit us!
