. . . of this 2011/2012 school year, that is.
This last couple of weeks has gone by really, really slowly. Today was our last day with the kids. We won’t see them again until Friday when they come in for half a day to pick up their report cards and attend one last assembly.
We have to switch classrooms — again — seems like Special Ed is the most transient group in the school system. We just moved into our new digs last year and we had come to really like and appreciate our space. Next year will be our third time moving. It’s enough to make me want to cry. Hopefully, this latest move will be our last. Our kids need and deserve continuity. Ah well, here’s to hoping.
I have mixed feelings about what to expect for next year. We are going from having 5 full time aides and one part timer to only 3 full time aides (possibly only 2). The needs are the same, perhaps even greater in some respects, but we’re really going to have to spread ourselves out in order to meet the demands. It’s going to be a challenge, that’s for sure. Good thing I work in a challenging environment.
