It's so hard for manster to ask for help. But he tried. He went in to the school early to look for the math teacher (Ms. C) who has given an open invitation for kids to come in early for help. I imagine not many take her up on it. She doesn't like kids much. I think she has worked wtih MS kids too long. Incidentally she was also his math teacher last year. It's the only class manster has with her and I don't even think she knows he has a 504. She probably just thinks he's a strange boy lol. So yesterday he was found "wandering in the halls" by an aid and Ms. C told me "it was very strange". Of course manster was probably not as forthcoming as he could have been, likely feeling uncomfortable and not explaining himself quickly enough. He said he had been to the classroom, she wasn't there (probably just ducked out for a moment) and he was on his way to the lab where he thought he was supposed to be. She wasn't very nice to him and now he will never ask her for help again. He is so stubborn. I may just let this one go. This teacher has a reputation and very few parents or kids think much of her. Manster will be upset if I bring more attention to the matter, he just wants to let it go. The only bad thing is that math is the one suject he really does need help with.
