David Zickwolf is a 6th grader who has been at ALP for about three and a half months. We worked with him for 120 hours on phonemic awareness and visual motor processing.
Almost everyday, David has come in carrying a backpack that looks as if it could possibly swallow him whole. We’ve all made it our daily joke, laying bets on when it was going to fall apart, or simply bury him. He’s laughed along with us and faithfully toted the backpack in so we could use his school materials in our program.
Friday was David’s last day with us, and he surprised the staff by bringing each of us our own personal grinch. We’ll miss him and his monster backpack, but we know he’s ready to take on whatever that backpack holds.
PS – David, we LOVE the grinches!
