I found out some really exciting and encouraging news awhile back... and can't believe I haven't shared it yet!!
Of the ten kindergarteners I've been working with that are ready for first grade next year (a bunch still have another year or two left before they are old enough), ALL but two of them are going on to a predominately Bulgarian elementary school!
This is HUGE news!! No reflection on me as far as success goes... but I couldn't be more excited! This means they are on the track to continue to be main-streamed if all goes well. :) :) :)
