Remember Miss Crabtree from the Little Rascals? She was the best. and I have to really give a huge huge thank you to the teachers at the boys school. With everything that has been going on, I am so much more in awe of the teachers. Sammy’s teacher is the best. She is so AWESOME and has been the best allie (ally??) through this whole situation. The playground coaches have been amazing as well. Also, the teacher of the 3rd grader who is involved has sought me out even called me to tell me how she was feeling and that she is available for any help. It is so wonderful to realize how much they all love the kids and want only the best for them.
I have to say with a few days between me and the incident, I am in a much better place. Sam is doing great. No more nightmares, and he is not afraid to go to school- nor play on the playground. Steps have been taken so that this will not happen again. And while we still have a few kinks to work out with the administration, we feel great about how the school is handling things. So kudos to teachers, who, like Miss Crabtree, love their students. Moonie moonie and tootsie tootsie. *for Amy and Meg.
