My wife and I have the pleasure working with three teenagers dear to our hearts. We try to give continued support in their personal, academic and spiritual lives, giving attention to what we can give the most in. At this point a big push has been academics. One of the teens we just stay on for continued focus and success and the other two we work on with follow-up, homework and bring up grades. Today we got one of the report cards and elated couldn’t explain the feeling that came upon us. The young man has shown improvement in his last two marking periods that have jumped a grade higher in each class for each marking period.
We await the report from the other two…one we know what’s coming and the other we are already impressed by the fact she is making sure she contacts her teachers to make sure if she can do extra credit to solidify her grades. We are proud of these young people…very proud.
