Bragging Rights

First off, let me give you the definition of three words in reference to Richard's Portfolio 2 class: Pass, Fail, and Conditional. Pass and Fail are pretty self-explanatory. If you fail, you have to retake the class. If you get a conditional on your review, that means you have the weekend to fix the noticed mistakes and improve elements in your portfolio for another chance at passing the class.

Richard heard some awesome news today from a teacher who was on the panel of teachers who critiqued his portfolio. He was informed that he was the only student out of the Portfolio 2 classes that passed straight-up, without any conditionals! Isn't that amazing! He was complimented for his great attention to detail and effort he puts into his work. Richard said, "It was a nice compliment, but I know there are mistakes." (The one I know that drives him crazy is in the text of one of his projects he placed a "-" hyphen where it didn't belong. Big whoopin' mistake, huh? Hardly.) Anyway, I am just so happy for him and proud of his accomplishments in school. After all, that is why we're in Seattle!

Have I ever mentioned that I love living here? Here's one reason:
I pretty much get to see this everyday.
