The sounds of celebrating, high-fiving and whooping it up you hear emanating from the Pacific Northwest are husband and I having an impromptu party on daughter's behalf. I can't wait for her to get home from school so I can tell her how PROUD I am of all the hard work she has done this year to get her math skills up.
Tutoring two nights a week for two hours each night. (It is worth every penny of the eleventy-thousand dollars it has cost us - even husband agrees.)
Studying on the weekends.
Actually asking her parents for help occasionally.
Doing the extra credit.
Staying after school for yet more help from the teacher.
She is not a math lover but she is determined to go to college and knows that doing well in math is vital to achieving that goal so she has worked her butt off to improve. WE ARE SO PROUD OF HER!!!
To all our wonderful family members, please send her a text message telling her how proud you are of her too. This is huge for a girl that failed Algebra last year!
I'm going to go bask in the wonderfulness that is her 97% geometry final grade.
