Lately, Nico has been telling us that he needs to get in shape.  We tell him what a great idea this is to release stress.  We remind him we have a gym in the building and now he is old enough to use it.  We offer to teach him how to use the equipment, but he never wanted to really take us up on it.  So, in order not to push, we dropped the conversation. 

Well the other day, Nico brought the workout subject up again.  I asked what days he thought he would like to schedule these workouts.  He said mom, “Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays?”  I ask why these days.  He said, “I don’t have my tutor.” 
Well yesterday after school, Nico hit the gym and ran on the treadmill. 
I am so proud of him.  This was all his doing.  YAY NICO!!!!

I am Marie. I am a proud mom of Aspieteen. I am an educator in the public school system. I have seen and expierenced many school districts not meeting the needs on students with IEPs. This is frustrating to me as an educator and as a parent. Districts and schools seem to focus on the money and feelings of teachers rather than what is best for the student to be successful. Sometimes, I will share the interesting information I have found via tweeting and blogging. Then, other times, I will share my own personal experience at a parent with an exceptional teenager.
