Vivian at school.


I was a substitute teacher at Vivian's high school last week, and during my off-period I stopped by Vivian's classroom to observe. I was so impressed with how engaged the students were and with how much Vivian's teachers were able to get her to do!

Here Vivian is reading with her teacher Ms. B. Vivian has learned quite a few sight words and is able to read them in these books

Vivian practices her writing by tracing letters with Mrs. Kemp

Vivian does a "work job" with Mr. Ripley (this one involved matching opposites)

If Vivian stays on task without melting down, she earns check marks. After three check marks, Vivian can do an activity that she chose earlier

Today's reward was listening to Arthur's Halloween

Vivian later in the cafeteria. I was amazed at how well Vivian did amongst all the noise and activity there!

Vivian at a pep rally. Vivian calls it the "pepperoni"

Yesterday Mrs. Kemp sent me this video of Vivian in her Partners PE class. I asked Vivian last night what she used to hit the ball in PE, and she told me a "hockey puck stick." Then she added, "Just like Will."

That top photo of Vivian is great - it looks like she is enjoying being at her school. And, it looks like this school is a wonderful fit and has caring, dedicated teachers. What we all hope for our children's schools. :)

What a great peak in to Vivian's day. Looks like she has a super talented crew of teachers working with her. Do you substitute teach often?
