At the time, I was desperate and looking for answers. Why couldn't my son be like the other kids and sit in his chair? Why did he roll all over the floor, under the desks, bite his teacher, kick another, and then have to run straight into a door and split his head completely open? Why was my son kicked out after 2 days of Kindergarten? Was he that bad? Was I that bad of a mom? I should have seen it coming. The first day I proudly walked into Kindergarten and sat him down, I looked around the classroom. White walls, round tables. Ha. Chaz wasn't gonna stay in this chair. He looked at me frightened. I thought, "There is nooo way he's gonna just sit in that chair." 4 schools later, we finally found a teacher that could work with him. Said she completely understood him and did whatever it took to make school work for him. She is my angel and if I only knew where she was I would send her flowers, gift cards, presents, give her a hug, send her family Christmas cards. She is the one that taught me it was okay to ask for what we needed. It's okay to expect the school to work with Chaz and learn what works.
Thank you, Ms. Phillips. Wherever you are, you are my angel.
