John’s father died when he was in elementary school, and Jordan had been struggling academically.
At the start of John’s junior year, I received a panicked call from John’s mom, Carol. She said that John was in danger of failing his classes. Carol was devastated and felt defeated. She was convinced John would never go to college and contemplated sending him to boarding school. I assured her that our Academic Coach, Joe, and I would do what we could to help Jordan.
Utilizing our executive functioning curriculum, Joe helped John re-organize his “life”. Joe suggested new binders, folders and other school-related items for John that would help him get back on his feet. After about six weeks, John was able to pull through the last quarter of his junior year and pass all his classes.
Carol was grateful for Jordan’s improvement and for Joe’s dedication to her son in supporting him in more ways than just an educator.
