In some ways, I feel like I’m brand new to teaching again. Audrey is so very different than Ethan. I know that my way of teaching Ethan is not going to work as well with Audrey. She gets frustrated when she can’t do things the “right” way. I need to be much more methodical and give Audrey more time to learn and more opportunities to do things she is good at. I do come with some confidence I didn’t have before. I know that this time is about Audrey progressing.
I love that she is excited to learn. I hope I don’t do anything to take that joy away. Audrey-girl, you’re going to learn so much!
