The school year is over and it wasn’t easy, but clearly Margot is doing something right. <3
What is a particular child/l’enfant particulier?
Those are the exact words the teacher used — not like the others, I presumed.
Sounds like more than a few teachers I’ve had…
I’ve always heard it to describe someone who’s “picky” or difficult to please. If you’re ‘particular’ you like things a certain way and anything else won’t do, especially if you’re super tiresome about it.
brb gonna cry now ;___;
I think that they are just jealous at how AMAZING Margot really is! AT HAVING FUN! :)
Sorry to hear you had this experience Boum! As a teacher myself, we were taught to always try to say at least one positive thing about our students when meeting with families. It’s surprising that they didn’t notice Margot’s social skills and outgoing personality, which are both wonderful strengths to have in the classroom!
You might want to do some reading into ADD, ADHD, and how they present in girls. Especially if she seems to fidget more than other children her age. Mine went undiagnosed for years because most people, including teachers and others who ought to know better, don’t know how ADHD shows up in girls.
We are already looking into this! Thank you for the insight though!
When I was a child, my ADHD and autism expressed themselves in similar ways to this. I wish someone had figured out what was going on because then these parts of me could have been enriching and letting me grow better, rather than things I was told to change.
Margot, you are doing things just fine, I hope you can use the things that make you different as elements of growth. Not as hindrances.
Cool and fun comics! I liked it a lot!
