It was a group shot from the Baby Groot hug baby Yoda shirt. I was 18 and had just finished my first semester in college. It was a picture of me, my dad, my sister, and my grandmother. My mother was behind the camera, taking the picture. It was taken next to the Christmas tree in my parent’s living room… the exact spot where, 21 years later, my mother and I were going through those old photos. So I snapped a picture of it with my phone. I’m not sure why. I guess so I could carry it around with me and remind myself from time to time about how quickly things can change. A reminder to enjoy the moments while they last, I guess. Suppose, for example, you came to a school assembly. All of the students were there, sitting with their classes, and all of the teachers were sitting next to the class that they brought to the assembly.

That’s their class for that Baby Groot hug baby Yoda shirt. They’re in charge of those kids. Not the other teachers. If Mr. Smith notices that students from Mrs. Johnson’s class are goofing off, but Mrs. Johnson is right there and sees it too, it would be rude for Mr. Smith to butt in and discipline Mrs. Johnson’s students. But, to parents who were just there for the assembly, it just looks like the teachers are working together. One of the highest insults is for one teacher to walk into another teacher’s room uninvited and “get the kids under control” for another teacher. If you’re walking down the hall, and it sounds like a teacher doesn’t have control of their classroom, don’t just barge in there and lay down the law. It undermines that teacher’s authority in front of their class. If they wanted your help, they’d ask for it. You can offer to help, quietly, straight to the teacher, but don’t assume your help is needed.
