Another school year!
Along with the excitement of having Zane start school begins the anxiety of Logan's school year. There are so many factors to be considered...placement, if his aide will be returning, new teacher, educating new staff on how to be successful in interacting with him...the list goes on. Our county is not great as far as education goes. Logan is at a wonderful school though, a diamond in the rough, and has a wonderful responsive team. We went and met his new teacher, reconnected with his old Special Ed teacher and Logan had the chance to explore his new surroundings.
Relieved to hear that his aide will in fact be returning this year.
Ecstatic that Logan was placed in a classroom with some kids he made friends with last year and a neighbor kid who he plays with on the playground.
Impressed that Logan opened up and started talking to his new teacher right away and told her the things he is interested in and remembered to raise his hand in the classroom.
I'm starting another school year full of hope but that doesn't mean that I go into it blindly. I made these cards last year and this year I decided to focus more on Logan and his "logan-isms", to help the people in the school understand him a little better.
