Working with Matthew one-on-one has made me realize there are some gaps I can go back and fix. When I first realized we were going to head in this direction, I conducted some one-on-one assessments in each area only to learn that he was missing a few skills and knowledge that he should have picked up by now.
Please understand that I’m not pointing fingers. When you’ve got a full classroom, these things can happen.
So, part of our learning is going back to fix those gaps. I’m pretty happy about that. I think he is too.
