today I could say to my student that she MAY have dyslexia disorder but I haven't done it. Honestly, I don't know if she is sincere if she only can manipulate in such a smart way. She has come today with one eye sore and told she has problems because of draught. She caughs all time. Maybe she should go to optician? She read mostly OK today. Again she needed a finger to help herself with proper lines. At last she asked me for something to read. Is she sincere? I don't know.
I wonder about her case. She speaks out her thoughts in English very well compared to her Polish peers. But the rest?
teacher's life isn't anything easy. But I alway pay attention on a lot of things. Once I made friends with a woman who didn't like teachers cause she was about to die becasue of intenstine problems and they still found her simulating:(. At last she was put on the operation theatre in the last hour when it could be possible at all.
And she survived that whole mess.
But she has never had any good memories because of it. Believe me.
