This woman goes above and beyond anything I've seen so far. She understands the kids, "gets" autism and anxiety, is well-organized, kind, professional. She brings in snacks, which can make the difference between a meltdown-day and a good day. She volunteered to stay late two nights a week to help kids with homework.
But since she's only been in the district for one year, her job is going to someone with more seniority. I know we had a thread about this last week, about favorite teachers/staff being let go because of budget cuts. I thought this one would be safe, but no. She says she has every confidence that her replacement will be well-qualified, and care about the kids. Even so, it's another big change. Not to mention that she's a great teacher who now has to look for work elsewhere. The old hag at the old school, whose been there since The Great Depression, gets to keep her job. It's not fair.
Oh well. Sigh! I'm 99% sure we'll be homeschooling next year anyway.
