Not reluctant anymore

Three years ago, her report card said "Nicole is reluctant to speak up in class". She was tentative, never raising her hand, never sure enough that she knew the answer.

Today, at parent teacher conference, we heard words like "confident, leader, self-assured, contributes willingly to class discussion, mature beyond her years, raises her hand for almost every question, and consistently does exceptional work." The word "reluctant" never came up.

And I got a little choked up.

it seems like that post you wrote so eloquently wrote three years ago has come to fruition, and that she finally has a teacher talented enough to bring out these gifts.

I love this post - great news and I can only hope my son will come out of his shyness.
