Dear Miss/Mrs/Mr TBA,
I have been praying for you lately. Not as much as I should be, but I have been. You will be shaping my daughter in a way that no one besides her dad and I have...on a regular, consistent basis...and I don't take that lightly.

I was so looking forward to learning your name on the list today--checking the posting with my little girl to see who you would be. And "Teacher to be hired" was a huge disappointment for me. I have met the other 3 teachers. I was comfortable with all of them in the small way I could be having met them just a couple of times. Knowing that you have not been hired yet is probably a big concern to it is for me.

My girl's only school thus far is Sunday School. And it's been amazing. She has been shown amazing love that is far greater than the academics you will be teaching. But I don't take your job lightly. I worry that perhaps you will be a first year teacher...and I know that that would be very difficult. I student taught, and it was the hardest job I had until I became a parent. I know that no matter what, I will be praying for you. Praying that the impact you have on my girl instills a love for school. But praying for you for your own sake as well.

Please know that I will do my best to be kind, helpful, and an encouragement to you. In return, I ask for you to teach my kid...and maybe even love her.

I'll be having her dad checking parent portal regularly until I hear your name.

Trina's Mom
