A Teacher's Writing eNotebook. Tuesday, June 2, 2015. At dinner someone mentioned their daughter had just come home with an award for "Perfect Behavior" from their school. First of all, they go to a school that I don't know anything about, nor have I ever met this child. The particulars of the child and the school have nothing to do with why I can't shake this idea. What I wonder is this - what is considered 'perfect' behavior? I doubt my room would be seen as a model of 'perfect' behavior, but I love th...

She floated on her back with some assistance from the teacher and a pool noodle. She didn’t cry when her face got wet. On the fourth day, well, this happened:. Maddie,my love, you.
