Today, I was working with Or again in class, for the second time this year. She is a vivacious, beautiful 11th grade Israeli. During tests, she needs the texts to be read to her, and for the most part, she understands. Halfway through the test today, she said, "Yardena, what are you doing after school?" She asked for my number because she wants me to tutor her at home, in exchange for food! She told me that she understands me when I try to explain things to her. Wow-I can't believe I only have one more class with her. She made it all worth it.
