I got another new student today. She, like the last student to join our little group, is working at grade level. This is such a rare thing to happen at my school.
Don't get me wrong, I will work with any student no matter where they are academically. It is my job, that is what I signed up for and am happy to work with all students. When students come in at grade level though it just makes my job that much easier because I don't have to do a lot of catch up, individualized work.
I have one more open spot in my classroom. I wonder who will fill that spot?
