    Maybe it is just that many of these skills she has not practiced recently and just has to have time to refresh herself on things that many people in jobs other then education do not use on a daily basis. For example, how often in "real life" does someone need to diagram a sentence or do an geometry problem? Even spelling and cursive people often do not practice because they use computers with spell-check (for more difficult words). I am teaching fourth grade and have been in the business world for the last four years and have had to review things that I haven't used in years. This does not make me unintelligent, just rusty. Tell her she should review the skills when planning. Many times veteran teachers do not consider that people do forget things that are not used often.
