TAKE YOUR PARENTS TO WORK DAY

 Being a teacher and getting parents involved is no easy task. Any day of the school year is a Great Day when you invite Parents to Breakfast, have an Open House or have an International Day.  So it was at MailChimp.com
In the Real World at the Work Place 
you have, Take your Child to Work and some
have Take your Dog to Work, but few, if any, 
have Take Your Parents to Work!! 


 They offered an awesome breakfast
of donuts, bagels, tea & coffee.

They also fed us a great lunch.



Our Guest Speaker was Grant Imahara from Myth Busters. 


Visited my Baby's desk, by the window : -)).



No bike rack under a tree next to the school building here!  
30% of the MailChimpers ride, walk or take Marta 
to work at the Ponce City Market. They secure their bike in the bike room with showers and lockers provided for those hot, humid Atlanta walk/rides to work.



This is the Atlanta BeltLine made out of bicycle tubes.
The air valves indicate exits on the interstates.
  


The Art Teacher will be thrilled to know that the ARTS  & HUMANITIES continue into this work place. 












The photos show knitting covering the huge support pillars in the building.
When visiting another school, most teachers enjoy "reading the walls".  
Art work and murals cover ALL the walls;
Giving the MailChimper an office
to brag about and enjoy! 
















This mural shows the Diversity in All, yet how we are still connected.
Look closely and you'll note how it's like a flow chart with lines connecting to each figure! 
It was "Awsomeness" walking through
the MailChimp campus,
seeing all the parents at their kid's desk, 
being shown what they do at "work" 
and meeting working friends of the kids.
Thank you Sharon for sitting with me!
 HI to Marti and to Alejandra!!
So very proud of you Baby Girl!! 
Love ya!!

What a cool event! And I loved all the interesting things to see! Especially the bike storage/shower area...I've never seen that done anywhere, is that common or do you know? What a neat idea!

Great post! I enjoyed seeing the bike storage area and showers are definitely needed in Atlanta! It looks like you had a special day.
