Congrats to Alex!

grr on the non-helpful school/teacher. Not helpful at all.

may it be a step toward more challenging math!


It can be as challenging having a gifted student as having a struggling one, I think.

Are you still considering the private school option for next year? Perhaps they will be more able to assist him?

We decided, with some reservations, to send him to public school next year. He pleaded and pleaded to go with his friends. One factor in our decision was that our parish school has no gifted program -- it's all up to the teachers, if they choose to add enrichment activities. In the public schools, he's got some access to gifted services. Our elementary school experience has not been promising on that front, but perhaps junior high will be better. If not, there's always homeschooling.

Huzzah, huzzah! Go "Alex"!! And CJ, all mothers of math nerds everywhere salute you! (But don't tell him I said he was a nerd -- maybe wizard would be better?!

Congrats! Bravo!

Hooray! Hooray!

That's fantastic! And what a strange response from the teacher. I'd be bending over backwards to help a student of mine in that situation.
