What The Hell?! Is This Resource Teacher For Real?!
If I have an obsession, it's definitely facebook. I love it, crave it, want it all the time. It's the reason I carried my blackberry around everywhere I went in the summer time (normally before that, it was because Dayton's school could call at any time and I'd have to go get him). Now that the school situation has calmed down (Thank God!!!), I continue to carry it around for texting and facebook. OK, so I have two obsessions. Anyways... the point of this post is not about my obsessions, but another mother's venting on facebook last night... Man! I can so totally relate as I've had to deal with this kind of crap for two years before this year. Again, it's hard to believe I'm dealing with the same school this year. I don't know what's changed, but I am so grateful for the fantastic start to the new year. I only hope it continues...
If Dayton's school staff is reading this, keep in mind that I love you this year, and I don't want to damage our relationship... Autism Diva Help is not about YOU, it's about all parents with children on the autism spectrum in Winnipeg, and the crap we have to put up with because of our wonderful government. By the way, thanks Premier Greg Selinger. You're such a freaking gem. Thanks for your non existent support. We so totally appreciate it. Thanks for continually passing my emails and phone calls to someone else so you don't have to deal with our kids.
Naturally, the little girl's name is changed to "your daughter" to protect her privacy. Other than that, I've copied and pasted the message word for word. I thank this wonderful autism mom for allowing me to blog about her facebook post:
my fb msg to resource last night
******, the agenda book has come home maybe 4 times, notes like "bring a hard thing" today she informs me her diorama is due tomorrow- what diorama?!?!?!? ok, so I've got her older sister out looking for ecosystem stuff, she can get a box from the garage (that I didn't let my husband throw away this weekend) and we can put something together quickly this evening... I cannot keep doing this, I don't know what time she's supposed to be there on shops day, I don't have any idea what her homework is, she's being stalked by **** at ****, **** has issues with her shoes, and tries to trip her on a regular basis, **** is what she is...especially in the gym change room., which we talked about. please stop the freaking madness.
response- Your daughter has been working with the EA's on the research and written component of her ecosystem. Her diorama is not due until Monday. Tomorrow, she will work with the EAs on the diorama itself - we thought this would be easier than having her try and explain the details, assemble the materials and work on it at home. She is not presenting until Monday. If there are "touch ups" that need to be done, we'll send it home with instructions. If not, we'll just be sending home her practice notes for the presentation. We did not put this is in as homework as we thought it made more sense to do it at school.
Kids need to be at shops for 8:45am.
I know nothing about **** - I know he was supposed to be going to ****, but never had this confirmed.
If *** is tripping your daughter, I'll address it. If **** is still ruling the gym room, I know nothing about it and yes we did address it but something has apparently broken in the plans.
I tried talking with your daughter yesterday? - but she was so excited about going to the doctor's, she couldn't connect with me.
I talked with the teacher this week and asked how your daughter was doing and she said all was well.
I will address the madness and touch base with you tomorrow.
if your daughter ever comes home and says something, about which you know nothing, is due tomorrow, exhale , have a glass or red wine (good for the soul and the blood)and say "How lovely!"
I'll try and touch base with you tomorrow.
a glass of wine while my daughter melts down...sort of like fiddling while Rome burns .. nice thought though
my girl did the diorama (we didn't know she had til Monday until10pm) insisted on doing her presentation today, would have gone on for hours, was very enthusiastic and detailed - while I'm at my therapist discussing ptsd and the stress that comes along with my beautiful autistic daughter....need wine now!! TGIF!!!!!
