we attended the IEP meeting in November, we met in a conference room.
Update: lunch was delicious, prepared by the students with some supervision!

I liked the new teacher, she had quite an uphill battle with Nove who lost her
anchor when her teacher for the last 3 years suddenly had to quit at Christmas.
Nove has had more loss in the last 6 years than many people have by the time
they're 50.

The teacher gave out awards to each student, from learning all 10 basic cooking
skills to putting together an awesome display to making the most improvement.

My granddaughter got 3 awards, including one for being empathetic. Aww.

I know she's empathetic here at home, but didn't know how far that empathy
extended in other settings. One day the teacher was trying to explain a concept
to a student who just wasn't getting it, both teacher and student were getting
frustrated.

Nove went to the teacher and quietly said, "Mrs. T, I don't want to hurt your
feelings but I could please talk to Mary (not her real name) because I think I
can explain it so she'll understand." So she explained, and Mary did understand
at last. Not only did Nove want to help the other student, she didn't want to
hurt her teacher's feelings. Aww.


So there all you parents who brag because your kid made honor roll.
