This happened in January 2016. As you know Ryan hasn’t been doing well in front of groups with the singing and dancing thing. We’ve started guitar lessons with Shelley and that’s helped. But school we still struggle, partially due to the teacher Mr. Reese.
But this week we got the following email from his teacher Mrs. Hauze, which we were SOOOOOOOO proud of!!!! It reads as follows:
I was so excited for Ryan today and wanted to share with you! I am on the dance and song committee for the upcoming Mini-Thon, therefore we had to help teach the students the song and dance a couple of times in the cafeteria. We were there today for the Mini-Thon helpers (one from each second and third grade class) to be videotaped in order to teach it to the rest of the school.
At the end, Ms. Rudawski invited the students who were watching (my class was one of them) to come up in front of the stage on the cafeteria floor. She let them do a little dance that she may possibly include at the end of the video. Ryan looked at me with some hesitancy. I let him choose if he would like to participate or not. He chose to go in front of the stage with the rest of the classes. Although he didn’t want to do the whole dance, he took the initiative to be involved. I was so proud of him and told him that I would e-mail you.
