Well, Robbie started in his new class today. It was a bumpy transition and it sounds like he was genuinely upset about it - not angry and protesting (there is a very big difference). However, the effect seems to be immediate. A different child came home from school today; one who actually did some work.
It's only one day but I'm thrilled it went so well. I'm also a little sad because we all liked his previous teacher. Thankfully, she's still very involved. I know better than to get too excited over one data point but next week is spring break and we won't get another data point for another ten days. Hence, I'm going to enjoy this.
