We had back to school night the second week of school and I’m only now getting around to posting about it. I’ve always struggled with BTS nights. I always end the night feeling like I put my foot in my mouth a couple times. Meeting parents for the first time always shakes my confidence a bit. I’m a bit socially awkward around adults anyway, so meeting a bunch all at once is hard. I always feel like I’m under scrutiny and that I’m being sized up. Of course, this all stems from my own insecurities – I can hardly blame parents for wanting the best teachers for their kids. I also shot myself in the foot this year by not taking the extra time needed to prepare a “Hi, I’m your kid’s Bio teacher this year, here’s some info about my background!” type presentation. If I had, I probably would have had a more successful night.
Anyways, I chose to wear heels for BTS night this year. It was a 13 hour day, and my feet were 100% comfortable as I walked my tired body and mind to my car at 8pm. Midi skirts just always look better with some extra leg length.
