Friday, I was Principal for a Day at Brandywine Springs, last year I was at Warner Elementary School.
I arrived around 8:00 am and sat in on a Team Leader Meeting before school started. I walked around the lobby as the kids were arriving to school and I ran into one of my favorite constituents, Rachel, who gave me a big hug. Rachel has worked with me on a few election nights tallying the numbers as they are called in. I helped with morning announcements, I read The Very Hungry Caterpillar to a Kindergarten Class, visited a 8th grade science class and helped with an experiment, visited a 3rd grade classroom the students were watching an Animal Planet video, stopped by an 8th grade technology class where students were selecting their classes for high school, popped by Mr. K’s art class where students were making ceramic pots, listened to the students in music class sing a song that they were working on, visited the library and listened to Mrs. Andrzejewski talk about internet safety and then had to stop by and visit Mr. Fran who teaches 4th grade, who actually taught me when I attended St. Matthews; it was a wonderful visit. I did get to see a few of the teachers who taught at Forest Oak when my kids were in school Mr. Ruocco, Mr. K and Mrs. O’Connor. Principal Armstrong did a great job keeping me busy, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. Great things are happening at Brandywine Springs.
