## Against the ODDS!

Today I did a lesson with a young lady from Mount Vernon who was in danger of being left behind. We have been working together for the past few months. She struggled with Math, and had failed several tests, so of course, her mother was very concerned. Well, today the girl announced to me very proudly that she was one of only two students, out of 21, who passed her Math test with an 85! The other student that passed was her best friend. So, 19 kids failed the Math test, and my student did excellent on it! This girl had a fear of Math, but now she is very much looking forward to her Math sessions, and her Math class. She said that now she knows she can get the answers right, so she is not afraid of it anymore! YEAH!
