I've mentioned a time or two that DD was anxious about getting the teacher she dubbed "the vampire" for the second year in a row. DD named her because "She sucks all the fun out of school!"

We went to the meet-and-greet last night. DD found out her homeroom teacher was a new teacher. Yay!

Once there, we found out that they're doing something new with 5th graders. They'll be splitting them up in two groups. DD's class will have language arts and social studies with her homeroom teacher. Then they'll move next door for math and science with another teacher.

Naturally, that's the vampire.

DD digested this surprise quickly, and responded with, "That's fine. Some of the other 5th grade teachers are mean."

Looking on the bright side? Who is this child, and what has she done with my daughter?
