My Heart is Sad

I don't usually talk about my job for a couple of reasons. One, I work with children who have varying degrees of disabilities (learning, I should add) so there is a confidentiality issue. Two, I have no idea who from work would read this. I didn't give anyone the link, but you never know who links back to me. So I don't feel comfortable venting.

However, I am too sad not to talk about it. One of my favorite students moved away. I said goodbye to her today. (Melissa, it's V from your class.) I worked with her some in 2nd grade and last year, in 3rd, I worked with her practically all day. This year, pretty much the same. She is a sweet, hard working girl. She just has trouble retaining, focusing, and reading. Sure, it may take us 20 tries in Math, but I guarantee she'll eventually get it.

It just scares me for her. She has come SO FAR. I don't want her to backtrack. I know the area she's moving to. It doesn't make me feel better.

My heart is sad for you. Sending you some e-hugs until I can see you and hug you myself!

You're so sweet! I'm sure she'll be fine. Just know that you've given her a wonderful foundation to grow on.

You show what a wonder you are by caring for your kids. How great that you gave her all you had.

Ya'll give me too much credit. But, I appreciate all of you & your kind words. More importantly, I appreciate the prayers for V.

I thank each of you.

Took me a few minutes to figure out who V was, but once I did I totally understand what you mean. It makes me want to hug my kids from last year. Please send my love :)
