Text message conversation with one of my most dedicated students (my message is in green). He retook the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education). He originally scored a 4.7 (4th grade level) in math in December when he began our program. His math TABE was a 7.8 today!! He puts in so much time and so much effort. It’s so great to see a student who puts forth the effort, and sees the results! He is SO close to be being at grade level, a 9.0.
It’s text messages and moments like these that make all the hard work worth it. I can’t wait to see this student tomorrow and make a huge deal out his score (he told his life coach to be sure to tell me because he knew how excited I’d get… I’m kind of a crazy cheerleader for my students). GREAT day.
