one of S1's teachers in high school. "He gets good grades because he perseveres."
I wasn't sure that I agreed with that assessment but once a student is pegged for a certain spot in school (12th grade and under) it is difficult for them to move up - no matter what they accomplish (at least in our area).
S1 is to graduate in May with a degree in Physics and a minor in math and astronomy. This semester he is taking 3 languages - German, Japanese and Arabic. He is the TA for Japanese.
He was asked to write a twice a month column for the opinion page of the college newspaper. Column 3 will be turned in today.
Class rankings came out yesterday to be used for grad school applications.
S1 is number 1.
**I have no idea how this will translate into grad school acceptance. Life is fickle sometimes and paths never run the way that you think they will. But I am so happy for him and I love good news!!
