I have to say I am so PROUD of my Aviry.
He has only one “C” on his report card!
Aviry is growing as a student and I am so proud of him.
To be brief Aviry was in a classroom environment where he felt disliked and ignored. Eventually after many conferences the teachers and I got to learn and appreciate one another.
This was not an easy task at all. During that time I felt ignored and left out by the teachers in his class. I felt judged. I felt Aviry was unfairly judged.
I had wondered did other parents feel this way? Am I doing this parent/teacher relationship thing right?
I should have spoken up. I could have but that’s something I struggle with.
Not one of the teachers knew we had been staying in a hotel the first 3 weeks of the school year. We had just experienced an apartment fire. We were fine our belongings were fine but it was a few days before we could gather our belongings. Suddenly we were moving to a new apartment on a different side of town and a much longer morning commute.
It was a lot going on. It was a lot for me and I know it had an effect on Avirys grades.
On top of that I was in school and working part time. I was stretched pretty thin.
I had wished for more support from the teachers. I wanted them to take a moment to get to know us.
Eventually they did. They began to take us seriously when they saw the progression in Aviry. We chose to hire Aviry a tutor through Club Z tutoring and we began changing our habits at home and following a routine It really helped Aviry. It gave him confidence. His grades went up and he worked so hard!
I’m proud to see that my son is determined and able to set goals and achieve them.
I know Aviry will accomplish everything he sets his mind too. I pray he is happy, healthy and able to achieve whatever is in his heart.
It just feels good to know that I think I’m getting the hang of this Mom thing. ; )
