Call Me Ms. Moreno
If you would have walked into St. Agatha last Thursday, you would have been welcomed with an odd sight. The teachers were sitting at desks, and a teenager was standing at the front of the class, asking them to please pay attention to the lesson. That’s because, this year, for the first time ever, eighth graders got to be teachers for a day.
We all had so much fun dressing up like our teachers and teaching the younger grades. I had even more fun because I was Principal for the day.
I started the day by greeting everyone with Mrs. Hernandez, and I realized how meaningful it was that she made the time every day to say hello to all the students. Not only do we know her, but by greeting everyone who walks into the building, she’s ensuring that only people who are meant to be in the school walk in. She then had a few meetings so she sent me to greet everyone in the school. I had so much fun talking to all the students, especially with the younger grades and middle school. My heart warmed as I talked to first grade and Pre-K 3. They would compliment and hug me and before I would leave they would ask me to be their friend. I laughed and joked with middle school students and I pretended to scold some of them.
Next, I returned to the office, where Mrs. Hernandez talked to me about some after school activities she wanted to offer next year. I looked over a contract with one of these businesses, and let me tell you, it was long. We discussed the process of collaborating with these businesses to offer fun extracurriculars for students. She has to look at different companies, interview the owners, and ensure everyone is certified through Virtus.
Then we spoke about how Mrs. Hernandez and my teachers collaborated with each other to ensure that the school day ran smoothly. She told me how she delegated some of her extensive duties to Mrs. Parets, and we wrapped up the day with dismissal.
I, along with all of my classmates, have a newfound respect for everything our teachers and administrators do for us. If this becomes an eighth grade tradition, I have no doubt that it will be beloved by everyone in the school.
