Andrew returns to school

We had word at the end of summer that Annie, Andrew's fantastically competent aide for lo these many years, has taken a job teaching in a private school.

Annie is gone.

A new aide was hired in Annie's place, but yesterday we had an email from his also-fantastically competent teacher, Clarice, reporting that the aide had quit. So apparently the final day of summer vacation for the kids was the new aide's first and last day on the job. Ed said, "Well, at least he didn't quit because of Andrew."

I was thinking to myself what an excellent development it was that Andrew's new aide quit before meeting Andrew, not after, when Ed added, "Unless he quit because of Andrew's reputation."
