Lexi’s last day of school before the summer break was Thursday. As you can imagine I was VERY sad about it being her last day. For the obvious reason of summer is kind of terrifying. But more importantly I LOVE her class, teacher, and aides. I am happy to report that she has the same teacher next year. But I don’t know who her aides will be – hope they are all back next year although that is probably unlikely. I’m also happy that her favorite little friend in the class will also be in the class with her. Yay!
I really cannot thank her teachers and aides enough. The progress she has made this year has been remarkable. Here is a list of some of the things she can do now she couldn’t do when she started school: sit in a chair; follow directions; ask for what she wants in a variety of ways; engage with a group; engage with peers; pay attention for any length of time; any eye contact; and a myriad of other remarkable things. She is a completely different child then she was when she started school in September. But even more than just her progress I want to thank her teacher and aides because they actually all really love her. They love all the kids in their class. That is why they have done such remarkable things for Lexi and the other kids in the class - because they care. Caring teachers and aides really do make all the difference for children like mine and parents like me.
