Who says showers have to be limited to new babies and new couples? From 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday in Rockridge, the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute is throwing a shower for new teachers.
Any newbie from the area’s public or private schools is invited to partake in the oohing, aahing and gifting that will take place at the College Avenue Presbyterian Church, 5951 College Avenue, Oakland, according to the e-mail notice I received. Veteran teachers and local office supply stores have donated books and other classroom materials for the occasion.
Questions? E-mail Bob Houghteling, director of the institute, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
