Pump2Duncan- thanks so much for sharing. It’s nice to be heard.
You understand exactly what The struggle is!
My son’s teacher has been at this school for 30+. She has had so many days off this year that I usually ask my son if she was at school today. She has been an excellent teacher in many ways. I hate to sound ungrateful.
I will email her later and ask what specific things Owen should expect to do. So it isn’t a vague goal for him. Thanks so much!!!
