The highlight of the meeting came when the teacher shared that earlier in the week she had a conference with another student who sits at my son’s table. During the meeting the girl showed her parents her desk. As they were checking it out, her Mom asked who she sat next to in class. The teacher overheard the student say, “I sit next to (my son’s name) and he doesn’t say mean things like last year, he is really nice now.”
It was awesome to hear a peer perspective of how far my son has come. Things are not perfect by any means, but the change is monumental!
