It’s hot. The seating chart’s a mess, filled with swaps, arrows, moves and marker. One of my students offers to rewrite it for me. She always offers to help. Will she make it to the end of this year? She’s already showing so I don’t think so. I hope she’ll return. She’s diligent, helpful and hard-working, traits that can lead to academic success even in a single-parent household where English is a second language. Soon she’ll be a single parent of two, though. Education doesn’t usually survive that burden.
I don’t have any answers here.
