Last week we had a P.T.A meeting with parents. Since I am a new teacher and most of the meeting would be in Twai anyway, after Grandma Grace introduced us, I headed out to supervise Basic 3, 4 and 5. I took this as an opportunity to inspire them with my leadership wisdom. They all leaned in, even the “tough boys.” I put some questions on the board-
