So school has been in session for ten days. I get a request from an EC teacher to tell her what a student's strength and weaknesses are. Between his absences, shortened days, etc., I've spent less than 11 hours with the kid. While he's surrounded by 30+ other students. How am I supposed to know what his strengths and weaknesses are at this point? Wouldn't he be better served by having a teacher from the Spring give her input? I told the woman that I had no idea. I barely know all of my students' names. I'll look at his grades and give her an estimate but that I'm nervous about contributing to a legal document with such a small knowledge base. I'll go to the meeting and I'll send what I *think* but everything I say will be precluded by a caveat.
