The students pictured below achieved a new milestone along the path to reading today, January 6, 2009. In addition to those pictured here on the blog, another student, S.B., also achieved an important milestone. I guess the stars are aligned. Does the earth being at perihelion last Sunday have something to do with it?
I cannot remember ever seeing seven students pass seven milestones on the same day. I don't think it's ever happened before. Cindy in daycare helped. She was going over the Soundabet with students during their lunch break. Cindy's working the daycare. She wants to be a teacher someday. She helped Trey along like magic, too. He's almost there.
This is the sort of day you dream about having when you're thinking about becoming a teacher. Days of this much success don't come all that often, but when they do, man, teaching can be a real joy.
