This is the end of Teacher Appreciation Week and I thought I would end this week by showing how much I appreciate SOME of my children's teachers. Sure you are always going to have a teacher that you just don't gel with and that's OK, but with my boys who are still in the public school setting, they have some great teachers. Both of my boys have Special Education teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty, mainly my youngest son's teacher. My son has put her through hell and back on some days and yet she still handles each day with a smile on her face.
My other son's Special Education teacher does a lot for him too, it was her along with her paraprofessional who got my son over the reading hump. My son is in 4th grade and is just now starting to be able to read on his own. He still struggles a lot, but he's becoming a bit more independent with it. Also his writing has gone off the charts in my opinion. But if you look at where he is compared to his peers, he's doing the writing of a 2nd grader. But that's OK, he's writing and I'm a proud momma!
Both of my boys enjoy writing their own little stories. They see me working on my book, and they want to be like mom, so they've both started writing Star Wars stories and Monster Truck stories... their favorite topics.
So I know this isn't a long post today, I just want to say THANK YOU to all of the wonderful teachers out there who are in this profession because they truly love what they do, the impact that they can have on a child, and loving these kids, even on their bad days.
Until next time...
