Last week I didn’t open letter to the professor of the astronomy class that Sarah was to take. From chatting with one of the admissions people, I was under the impression that his permission was needed for her to be accepted to the class.
He sent me an email with an incredible reply and I really look forward to my daughter being in his class.
It turned out that she had not made it past the Dean of Admissions, that it had not been proved to her satisfaction that Sarah could handle the rigors of a college course. While it sounds like she did not get all of the letters of recommendation for Sarah, it did seem easy to remedy.
I went back to Sarah’s school.
The principal is writing a personal letter as well as mentioning a few of the other things Sarah is doing in the school, and including all of her test results.
Sarah is going into kindergarten classes, and working with STEM toys to teach them. She is tutoring older kids who are having a challenging time reading or working with math. Her advanced learning teacher is writing another letter and has pulled a few different other things together… her Camp Invention Director put together a letter sharing her thoughts about an 8 year old girl who had amazing inventions and helped lead her age group through the week long experience.
I am blown away buy how all these amazing people have pulled together to help Sarah…
It is too late for fall semester, but it looks like everything is in place so she can start in January.
I received hundreds of letters from readers about this, and appreciate how upset a lot of you were on the behalf of my daughter.
I adore y’all.
