Having a blast shooting a parent video for Meet-the-Teacher Nights this morning, with five awesome GPSD families. Big thanks to volunteers Marty de Vecchio and Treely Dowd for your help, and to all the parents who juggled soccer and dance and errands and work this morning to be here. In addition to a great new GEF video, there will be a pretty good blooper reel when we’re done! High five to @brothersbrewcoffeeshop for the treats! πŸ™Œ #gloucester #family #workingparents #meettheteacher #gef #brothersbrew ... See MoreSee Less
