guilt

in the midst of my iep-crazy week (5 ieps plus two other special ed-related meetings) i got a letter from a kindergartner that reads,
"dear mrs. lipstick, wen are we gooing to rede chapter 2?"

because i started a book with him three weeks ago and we haven't read chapter two yet.

feeling like i'm letting down my co-teachers, and even worse, really letting down the kids.

You have a student that can write that well in kinder? I would be so happy if my regular ed students could write that well and they are 7th graders! (and yes, they have been in the US for their entire lives.)
