    It's great, isn't it? I am afraid that a month or two from now it will be the other way around frown You know when quite a few people find out that their child teacher is not what they hoped for, that differentiation meant more work, that "all kids are gt". etc.

    I'm going with unbridled optimism for now. We need it! There's always time for disappointment later.

    You know what I always say: expect the worst and hope for the best. Keep a positive outlook, but be prepared to act if things don't go as you hope. I really think it's a sensible, Spock-like way to be! wink

    The great thing about this group is that it allows us to be optimistic and at the same time know enough about the pitfalls to try to side step them when possible. For me, personally, it was a long journey from March until now and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I got a lot of help from the "regulars" here and others. So thanks guys!

    Great! And it's true JBDad, it's a journey for sure. DD6 got a really good teacher this year. I'm to the point that I don't even care if her learning environment is ideal! I just want her to have a happy day when she goes to school!

    However, I've been told that she is very child centered teacher and flexible concerning my child's situation, so I'm looking forward to a great year.

    DD8 will be pulled out for an hour and homeschooled for math. The principal has been great with working with us. The teacher seems a little skeptical smile but seems willing to give it a go.

    I'm sure there will be things that come up that won't be ideal, but we'll take it as it comes.........as I'm sure you will. It does feel like progress though!

    But not at the sake of the child. First do no harm..........
