NaBloPoMo Day 15

I'm once again ignoring the prompt in favor of addressing Nora's school situation.

The conversation I had today with the director of Nora's school went reasonably well. I feel better about some of the issues (the curriculum, the Montessori set-up, the discipline situation), but not really so much better about the biggest issue (the attitude of Ms. O). The director honestly seemed flummoxed that anyone could have a problem with Ms. O's attitude, but I think she started to get it when I gave her concrete examples from my own experience and shared some of the things that other parents have told me. And I appreciate that she was honest about wanting to address the issue, but needing some time to think about how to handle it. The jury is still out on whether it will be handled to my satisfaction, such that I feel comfortable with Nora staying there and Isaac someday going there, but I'm willing to give her a few weeks to figure out how to deal with the situation before I make any decisions about how to proceed.

So, all in all, I feel less furious today. But we have our autumn parent-teacher conference with Ms. O next week, so depending on her level of defensiveness there, that may very well reignite my annoyance.
