Teacher Comment Page Anthony, though I appreciate the red and gray color scheme, the grid lines were hard on the eyes. You really could have gone into more detail on many of your responses. 23 out of 30. One very telling response you wrote indicated that you do only a half an hour of school work at night. By 8 th grade, that amount of time is WAY too low, and it’s no wonder you don’t accomplish much outside of school. You have natural abilities that are not being stretched- when you complete work here at school, you do pretty well, and you have gotten faster in three years, but not working outside of school will not lead to success in high school. I’m concerned about your sleepiness. What time do you go to bed at night? Though teens need sleep, you shouldn’t need a nap after 30 minutes of schoolwork. Have you seen a doctor about your tiredness? Sra. T.
