The class was given an assignment to write a paper on what they want to be when they grow up. While writing his outline, my son was told that he had to change his subject. She told him that wanting to be a baseball player was a fantasy to a reality.
He told her that the assignment was what he wanted to be, and thats what he wanted to be. She then proceeded to tell him that becoming a baseball player was luck and not something he can realistically work towards. Which upset him greatly because he doesnt agree withher. He feels that if he works hard, puts in the effort and sets goals ...if he is then good enough h can play baseball for a living.
And you know what, i agree with him. I also feel it was wrong of the teacher to minimize all of the effort my son puts into this sport that he lives for.
Also to add, i saw the outline l and it was really good. He talks about hardwork, dedication, commitmentand passion. It just stinks that the teacher is so closeminded.
