    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We had two learners, one with special needs who came to class with a support person. The class was small and there were unique issues with the special needs learner, but the other student was patient and the class was well done.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): Class was small tonight (2) possibly because of the snow last week—there had not been a class since 2/15. Might be a good idea for the school to remind students that the classes are still going.
    One student was frustrated, likes things words spelled out for her rather than trying to write them out. Any ideas as to how to approach this are appreciated.

    What happened (as short or as long as you like, but be specific): We had only 2 learners, one with very low proficiency. Kalin (shadowing and doing her dress rehearsal next week) and Sofia (regular volunteer) were very helpful. Class may have been less difficult if there had been more students who could have helped out with the one student who is having difficulty
