My sixth-grade daughter had trouble transitioning to junior high in the beginning of the year. She was having trouble in all of her classes before I met with her teachers and got her help. The only class she is still struggling in is math. Before the holiday break I met with her math teacher and was stunned when he asked me out. I told him I would get back to him after the holidays. If I go out with him he will most likely give my daughter a favorable grade, but if I don’t I have a feeling he’s going to be rough on her for the rest of the year. If you were me what would you do? Even though I don’t like him going out with him would benefit my daughter.
