After a goal setting, getting acquainted, power-outaged first week and a nebulous homework-wrestling second week, things are just now starting to have a shape. As I went over to J. to see how he was doing, his grin echoed his words: "Hey Miss M, I have all my work done!"
Beaming back, I said, "Is it just me or do you seem to have it all together? You on a roll or something?"
And sincerely his eyes widened, his expressive hands went up, and he confided: "This is the first year that I've been on top of things. I hope I can stay there."
Me, too, J.: It's my job, my goal, my passion.
