This might take a little more investigation: Instafam

The name tags are laid out for the parent-teacher meet-and-greet. My name isn’t there. I Sharpie “Sarah Humphreys” on a blank one, but that doesn’t clarify much, because I am actually the fiance of the dad of a new student going into kindergarten.
