The Awesomeness of Teachers

I just want to give huge shout out to the amazing teachers in my girls lives.  There are good teachers who educate well and help your child learn.  Then there are great teachers who have the inborn ability to really and truly understand how each child learns and go out of their way to nurture that.  We are so blessed that all of our girls teachers are that breed.
We had Reagan's annual IEP meeting recently and I am almost frightened by how easy it was...there was no fight,  her teacher and therapists all understood  how she learns and suggested fantastic goals for her.  I get daily reports on what she is accomplishing and how to help her with things that she struggles with.  Cadence's teacher lets us bring in the therapy dogs for a reading program that encourages the kids to read.
 Clarisse's teacher recognizes her innate desire to teach and has her helping the kindergartners and helpings with small tasks in the classroom.  The principle of the big girls school provided them the opportunity to tell their friends that they are celebrating Down syndrome awareness month for their sister.  WE ARE SO BLESSED!
