Why was I freaked out? Because our interactions on a daily basis are usually non-existent. If she even looks at the parents at drop off, it's unusual, let alone address you.
As I stood there, chatting with her about the bargains in the store, I really wanted to corner her and ask her "how is my daughter doing?" but I didn't. It seemed like an inappropriate moment to ambush her with the question. One of the other parents, said I was nuts, why not?
And so the awkward moment ended. "I gotta pick up my daughter, have a great weekend." politely ending the conversation and off I scooted hoping not to run into her as I left.
In the same situation, would you have asked your teacher how your child is doing????
