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

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

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

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. :)
