I just got a treat where I didn’t think one would exist.
My little niece, whom I’m around quite often, asked me to go to her open house at her school. My first reaction was one of a little heartmelt with a hint of dread. I don’t have any children of my own and that’s probably just fine. I like children but just haven’t the patience or focus required to be a parent. But, there is never saying no to that face. I showed up and the first thing that hit me was how completely comfortable it was in side. I mean like instantly. The air was crisp, clean and perfect HVAC maintained. It got me to stop and check my surroundings for a minute. This school was brand new. I think it was only the first year it had been open. My beautiful niece came running to grab my hand and drag me off for an amazing tour. This was nothing like the elementary school I went to. It had a gym, an auditorium and a lovely library area. The library was full of plants with floor to ceiling windows and sky lights all over. Her classroom was equally well done. She had a very ergonomically designed cubby/desk situation of her own. She was very proud. I noticed the classroom had its own thermostat on the wall. This was really amazing to me. Apparently, the entire school had separate HVAC zones throughout each area. That meant her teacher could control the temp in her class. That had to be nice. Especially since the class faced a lot of direct sunlight.
