There is a student in one of my classes who is enormously talented but who has had across-the-board problems with motivation all year. I've changed the student's name in the following letter I received from his parent, but all I can say is that I'm constantly impressed -- if at times overwhelmed -- by the power of technology to motivate these kinds of great students who otherwise might be written off.
Thanks so much for allowing Thomas and his classmates to "Skype"(?) I am so clueless when it comes to technology, but I do know that Thomas and his cohorts studied together for hours yesterday!! I am so grateful for anything that keeps Thomas excited about his studying. May God continue to bless your work. You have already made a difference in my son's attitude towards school.
