A NOTE ON MY ABSENCE
I am unexpectedly absent. I have adjusted the agenda to succeed without me. Use your tablet to follow the agenda as best you can. It goes without saying, but make sure to welcome the substitute teacher to our home. Treat him or her with the hospitality and deference you would any guest of good intent. I know you’ll make me gush with pride.
