Of course I have never been the best of posters :). I read so many insightful and interesting posts from others, especially Parents of kids with special needs and the pictures, OMG the pictures!! It is more than a little intimidating! As a matter of facts I just realized that I had comments on a couple of my posts, so I had never published them. That's how often I get comments 😯. Thank you all were kind enough to let me know you felt about what I had to say! Rest assured they have now all been published.
I admit I am not a great (or even very good) writer, but I am extremely interested in and dedicated to what I write about. Some people seem to feel I am an idealist. That I should stop caring about my students when they leave my classroom, but I find that difficult to near impossible. Most of my students are non verbal and their parents are in a situation they probably didn't plan on. On the other hand, this is what I do for a living because I choose it, it excites me and I enjoy what I do. It's like that adage, "enjoy what you do and you will never work a day in your life". Except when I have to get up at 5 in the morning and we get NO snow days 😁.
Anyway, I have also not been blogging because I got a new puppy for my birthday. My birthday was in May, but I had to wait until near the end of July. Wow! You forget how much an 8 wk old puppy is like a young child, middle of the night feelings and he puts everything in his mouth!!! Fortunately and unfortunately, they grow up much quicker. I love the smell of puppy breath and the feel of soft puppy fur, even at 3 in the morning 😊.
