Jennifer commented on the post, Amira, one of our children
I was really touched by your description of Amira in your post “Amira, One of Our Students” because you painted a very compelling picture of a sensitive child. I am sad that Amira seems to give so much more respect for others than she receives from her peers. Reading your review I felt that Amira had someone who could understand and be…Read More

I enjoyed your description of Keila in your “Description of a Child” because I felt like I could picture her via your words. I also appreciated how strengths-based your approach was in this description and the way you noticed small details that might have eluded many of us.

I am devastated by your post, “Description of a child” because it worries me how moving schools can take a toll on one’s mental health. I do strongly believe that it can be quite difficult to learn new things when not being comfortable with the environment you’re in, it may cause stress and other hardships which I feel can be resolved.
One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Sometimes she can seem deeply concentrated on her work or what’s going on in class, while other times her attention seems to drift away.” I think this is because students, in general, can have a tough time focusing which is mainly because students tend to lose their focus. In this case, Nahla can have trouble focusing because of her circumstances which causes her to lose concentration skills which I feel can be resolved.
Thank you for taking the time to create this. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I am interested in farthing my knowledge of what students can go through when having changes in their education. I also want to see how Nahla can use these difficulties to resolve them and understand them. Lastly, I look forward to hearing from you and what you feel about this situation.
I am astonished by your post, “Description of a Child,” because it gives us a greater perspective on how school can be mentally draining, &’ challenging. I feel as though this post thoroughly describes how hard it can be for one to be mentally &’ physically in the present moment.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Parents and teachers report a high level of school anxiety despite strong grades and test scores in elementary school and strong contributions when present in school.” I think this is very eye-opening because parents and teachers should understand that school can very much be one of the reasons to one’s anxiety.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because based off of this post it seems as if though you will have more amazing posts. I was very fascinated by your work.

I am astonished by your post “Description of A Child” due to the fact that it really goes into depth about the lives that children live. It describes in detail many obstacles they face and how they feel on a daily basis.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Parents and teachers report a high level of school anxiety despite strong grades and test scores…” I think this is very important because even though students may perform well academically, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are doing fine emotionally or mentally.
Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I love the way you go into depth and describe the topic and provide numerous examples for that the reader can vividly imagine the story right in front of them. This allows individuals to gain a deeper understanding and a new perspective they never saw before.
