Hi there, Bridget Mackay with the Law Offices of Bridget Mackay. I practice in estate planning and elder law.
And today I want to talk to you about this topic that was in my newsletter to my clients this month or this quarter about going back to school. Surprisingly we are gearing up for another school year which, it feels like school starts earlier and earlier each summer.
But it got me thinking about how we prepare our children to go to school. We send them off, we trust our teachers. The teachers are amazing, and they give our children a legacy.
As you prepare your children for school. You want to think about my preparing my children for the rest of their lives. If something happened to me, do I know that they’re going to be taken care of? That they’re going to be physically cared by someone I chose. That the assets I have, however how small, will be meant for their care. And if you hadn’t thought about that and you want to know more about it please check out our webinar for young families. You can sign up and watch it anytime you want. Just go to our website, click on it and you can begin. But I also thought about the legacy of teachers and how we all have teachers I’m sure in our lives that made a difference and will always remember them.
Mine in particular was my third-grade teacher at David Weir School in Fairfield, California and her name was Mrs. Chadbourn. And Mrs. Chadbourn was my favorite teacher of all time and I can’t really tell you why, except to say that she had this beautiful sort of southern drawl and she was kind and she was thoughtful, and she was patience. And, I probably learned more in her class as a result.
So, I want to encourage all of you that are watching and all clients that you can go onto our Facebook page, Bridget Mackay Law, and tell us who your favorite teacher was and a little bit why. You can do it anonymously. You can give as much detail as you want. And pictures are always great. So, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
