My 9 year old went back to school after 2 years at home. I hadn't heard a word from his teacher. Today she sent an email that said:

"(He) is adjusting to classroom expectations very well. Academically, he is performing terrifically and I can see I will need to keep him challenged in all academic areas. :-) I find his eagerness to learn and participate in classroom discussions
refreshing. "

I cried. Not like I used to with horribly negative emails I would receive. This was wonderful. I read quickly to see what the catch was, but there wasn't one. She just said she's write things down for him to remember, and if anyone is mean to him, let her know. Maybe everything will be okay.

:D

Please tell her how much you appreciate that information. Teachers like that are wonderful and can make such a difference.



And well done your DS!!He must be really trying soooo hard, particularly after being homeschooled, to adjust to the challenges. He's a pretty wonderful guy (but that's not surprising because he obviously has a pretty wonderful mum!)

Oh that is SO good to hear! How wonderful!

It really makes all the difference when you have a teacher you know cares for your child. They don't have to be perfect but when their heart is in the right place and they are trying their best it makes all the difference in the world, doesn't it?
