I'm So Proud of My Sweetie!

James got his first monthly review today. They were rated on attendance, professional appearance, readiness for a job, technical abilities, and maybe something else. He got a perfect score for them all. Also, his teacher said that he is a hard worker. That might not seem like a lot, but the program director told James that his teacher doesn't do that very often. Yay! I'm proud of him.

Barbara

Edited to add, the other thing is physical fitness.

Three huge cheers for James!!! You knew he would "WOW" them, didn't, you Barbara. His reviews will hold him in good stead when it comes time to get a job. We're so proud of him. Please pass on our good wishes.

Thanks Katie! Yep, I have told him all along that he would wow them! He is working so hard. He goes way beyond what they ask of him.

Thanks everyone! I'll pass the messages on to James (when he has the time he does pop in to read a few posts). A couple times this last month James has worried a little because the teacher said he had asked a dumb question. Then he realized that he had just asked about something they hadn't gotten to yet and the teacher just wasn't ready to go there yet. I have never doubted his abilities yet (and don't plan to start!).
