A thousand meetings, trainings, emails, and conversations later, and I still can't secure a decent (oh, excuse me, appropriate) placement for my own kids. B's teacher is leaving. Just found out today. I swear, I didn't have anything to do with this one! I've been trying to be nice to her and share information without telling her that she's an incompetent idiot. I'm not particularly upset abt losing this particular teacher, just about another transition for B, the message it sends to the paras, a whole new learning curve, and some fear and trepidation abt who they might bring in. If we're lucky, maybe it will be Sub K. Although I understand that as of this July 2006, the whole emergency credential game goes down the drain, they actually have to scrunge enough enough real credentialed teachers, and actually pay them decent enough wages so that they'll stay.
I wish I knew how to make everything better.
