The Old Switcharoo

Every school year there is a switch-a-roo of sorts.
A child who had been a genius at math for the past year or two or three suddenly struggles.
Or a child who's best was pretty average grades, suddenly is a straight A student.
It boggles my mind.
Is it because children go through phases?
Is it a good match between teacher and student? (or lack thereof)
This year, so far, I believe, has been the biggest switch-a-roo of all.
I am on my toes. I don't have a choice, because my children are keeping me there.
And this switch-a-roo is a good thing this year for one of my children, and shocking and not-so-good for another.

And this is where I sigh.

It's so true about the phases and teacher/student dynamic.

So LAIE BOYZ is a gang in my home town in Hawaii. That's why we're so afreared of them.
