His first day of school with her was the first day he never cried when I left. I knew he’d be fine. I helped out a bit during the school year, came to the events, parties, etc., and I never saw another class as well-behaved as hers.
My son finished Edison in 2006 and he was more upset to say goodbye to Kaitz than anyone else.
She had become someone he could talk to, be silly with and help out in her classroom. We were sad to see that she left Edison because my daughter started kindergarten this year, and we wanted her to have Kaitz next year. We ended up moving to Santa Clarita this summer, so we wouldn’t have had that chance anyway.
We’re very happy to see that she’s happy and doing so much for so many other children and their parents. I don’t think she realized how much our son respected and loved her. Thank you, Mrs. Kaitz!
Glimmer of hope dashed by politics
I had hope for a couple of days after Rep. Adam Schiff voted against the bailout bill (“Bailout needed more accountability,” Community Commentary, Oct. 2). Then, what a disappointment, but not a surprise, that he then voted for the bill (“The end of the beginning of money woes,” Pol Position, Oct. 4).
I’ve read his long-winded excuse/explanation of his decision to support the bill more than once and am still amazed at what little sense it makes. It’s scary to think that he actually believes his own backpedaling. Sentence after sentence, paragraph after paragraph, his page-filler was nothing more than a “don’t blame me” filibuster to justify his support of a terrible bill that is too little, too late, but it sure must make him feel good to think he took some action.
