Fall 2011: Chantilly Academy Lower School

Fall 2011: Daniel Becker is 22, Jessie Gorey and Chris Mather are 13, Matthew Pitts, Molly Lind, Tina Traveller, Lana Connor and Nicholas Gorey are 8.

LSFallClass2011.JPG Daniel has 7 students in his class this year. I nice easy number to handle for his first full year of teaching.

snapshot_d8dc3617_f94e411a.jpg The first few weeks of library time a few of the kids didn't know what they should be doing so Daniel had to help them figure out what options they did have.

snapshot_d8dc3617_396d3b35.jpg Music class is a different story. It's a mixed bag when it comes to music.

snapshot_d8dc3617_596d3b50.jpg The boys often don't want to do music so it can often be a battle to get them to pick an instrument. Daniel found that informing them if they didn't work on their skills here they would be way behind when they went to High School and thus they wouldn't be able to play the guitar or drums.

All in all the fall semester went very well for Daniel.

The schools are so great. What an awesome way for the kids to get skills built up already.
