There are many great teachers in G's daycare. It is not the most diverse place as G is the only full Asian child, one little girl is mixed race Vietnamese and Caucasian. Of course the main race is white with a few African Americans there and then G. No Hispanics that I know of or that I have seen and though there is a decent Asian population between the two towns due to Hino Motors, though the kids tend to be older. But today, when I walked in there was a young Asian woman (beautiful girl) standing there. I thought she was a friend of one of the workers and wondered why the teachers kept pointing at her for me to look at. So I did. It was just the you know, once up and down like "yeah." Well, this is G's new teacher and I am so excited on two fronts.
She is Thai, adopted from Thailand. I asked her the "Where are you from?" with a double intent but would have not pressed had she just said the state (maybe eventually I would have asked because I can't not be nosey). But she offered that she was adopted from Thailand. I said, "Well, I did want to know that but I also meant mainly were you from here." I of course (the other teachers had already) told her that G was adopted from China.
She of course had never heard of her new town until her husband got a job 45 mins up the road (literally). They are in a good location though. She just graduated college, got married a week ago and moved then started her job today.
But I almost cried because I am hormonal and just so glad for G to have someone who looks like her in her class as a grown up role model. I so hope I am not disappointed. Okay, so maybe I put too much hope and expectations on G's teachers!!
