Conference

We had a meeting with one of Son's teachers this afternoon.  The school system is asking all of the teachers to meet with the parents of the students they have in first period.  It gives the parents a contact at the school and allows the teachers to learn something about their students from the parents' point of view.

When I walked into the English teacher's classroom, I saw some posters that summarized some of the Greek myths.  I supposed this will be more "Literature" than specifically "English."  The summary of the myth of Arachne jumped out at me, and I commented, "When the devil challenges you, you play to win, but when the  gods challenge you, you should play to lose."  The teacher agreed wholeheartedly.
