If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had an amazing visitor yesterday. A friend of mine who lives hours away, came by yesterday for a chat. I loved seeing her and it definitely made my week. We chatted like we had seen each other only a few hours ago. What I enjoy about seeing my friend is that we seem to pick up where we left off in our last conversation. It was with regret that I said good-bye to her at the end of the visit. I already look forward to the next time we see one another.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my friend’s visit was a welcome distraction to the deadline I have been working on for the past week: report cards. The past two weeks I have been assessing the children’s reading, writing, listening, and speech in French. I am currently in the process of summarising their Math abilities and will continues assessing their recent projects. I spend quite a bit of time on my students’ report cards as I wish to make the comments personal, as well as make sure that their grades accurately reflect their skills.
If we were having coffee, I would have to say good-bye after a couple of hours as the report card deadline looms.
What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
