Try some 1:1 with the kids. Let your co teacher take the lead. Pull kids one at a time and do the stuff you like. You got into this because you probably loved seeing the light of understanding come...

Ask her why she has moved around so much. If she had no choice in the moves it would be a good thing.

The thing that gets me is that no matter how hard I try I CAN NOT un-do the way a parent raised their child to give excuses and have low expectations for themselves.
