No where in his life has he had peers that were as excited and impassioned about math as he is, or teachers that could introduce him to ideas that challenge him in a deep way. He reads out loud to me the chapter names in each new Elements book he gets, so excited by the concepts and frameworks he has never encountered before. His homework is finished before I even think to mention it (and trust me, this is not the case for most of his schoolwork!). I really believe that knowing Wednesday is coming helps him get through the mundane and gives him a vision for the rest of his academic life.
The highlight of the summer program was the care and interest that the teachers invested in the students. The care and investment in the students was obvious from the first day when I met the teachers until the very last day when the teachers shared with the parents. You have a gifted and motivated group of teachers!
