I have no where else to post this so forgive me, I'm just a proud father.
I'm a single dad. I have full custody and have had it since she was 3 when her mother decided parties were more fun.
When she was 4 she asked me to do an all nighter. I smiled and figured I could make popcorn and watch Disney until midnight when she would inevitably pass out. Instead, she chose to do a 1st graders workbook. I had the privilege of teaching her the intricacies of simple addition and subtraction. 5+5 and 7-2. Things like that. She ended up doing 20 pages by 1 am
Fast forward to today. She is in 2nd grade and I was called into a meeting with her teacher. He is a good dude. He didn't know what to do because on one hand, she was super wiggly during math time and distracted the other kids. On the other she consistently got 100% on her worksheets. 2nd grade in my area typically teaches long addition and subtraction. 523+432 or 420-179.
When prodded, she told us that she was bored. And that she taught herself "mystery math". We know this as pre algebra. She was so bored in 2nd grade she taught herself questions like 20+a=49, a=?
Her teacher has made worksheets specifically for her and while she completes them in the same amount of time, she gets about an 85% average. She is finally challenged in education.
Sorry is this isnt the place. I'm a proud drunk father. She wants to be an engineer or a geologist
