All semester I told them to go for help. I collected homework and even accepted it late. I volunteered extra help before or after class. Almira did none of those things.
The term has ended and she has barely earned a C-. To transfer, she needs a C. Almira is crying and begging for extra credit. She even sent her dad in to plead her case. If she will do anything to pass now, why couldn't she have done things earlier. It breaks my heart to see her so miserable, but it is a lesson she must learn. Hopefully she will retake tithe course and get on with her life.
