This is a special post for "Miss" Tammie and "Miss" Dennie Kay's class at Metter Elementary and for Ms. Lopez's 2nd grade class at Tornillo Elementary.
While we were waiting for lunch at La Calesa, I just had to visit the school. Once an educator always an educator!
I saw Tornillo Elementary School across the street. So I went over to find the principal, like "Miss" Charlotte. He is a man named Mr. Severo Alcoset. Here is a picture of me with Mr. Alcoset.
Tornillo Elementary (http://www.tisd.us/el/default.asp) is like Metter Elementary School (http://www.metter.org/mes.html). It has Prekindergarten, First, Second and Third grades. The counselor (like "Miss" Tammie Lanier), Mr. Rosales, took me to Ms. Lopez's second grade class. I took my bicylcle in the class so they could see all of my gear. The boys and girls had lots of questions. They looked at a map, just like the one at MES and saw where we are riding. They wanted to know where I lived. We found Georgia on the map. They live in Texas. Can you find Texas on your map? Can you find Georgia on your map? They asked me if I could speak Spanish. I can only say a few words. Here is a picture of the class and me.

When we left, the boys and girls came out to say goodbye. Thank you Mr. Alcoste, Mr. Rosales, Ms. Lopez, and all of the other staff for letting us visit. You can send me a message by clicking on comment. I will read it. Remember to wear a helmet when you ride a bike.
