I got my progress reports and report cards finished!

Thank you all for your support! It was so awesome to receive the news of my professional status. Long story short, it was an ugly battle with a former principal. I won!

Wahoo! I am not a fan of dealing with advocates. I don't think they always have the best interest of the child in mind. Some just have a need to get back at a school system. I have seen it too many times. I currently have a student who should not be in my program. However, his advocate (a tough one that many districts don't like working with) refuses to let him be placed where he should be. Foolishness! He could be getting more of his developmental needs met than in my autistic program.

We had a potentially difficult meeting (with an advocate on the parents' side) that went really well, and I was in charge! :)

Three IEPs in a row, all three kids from the same family. NONE qualified for services, just 504 plans. I don't do the 504s so it was a nice easy day for me. Two more today and then a three-day weekend!

My little escape artist is just 5, in K, AU and developmentally delayed, non verbal, good receptive language. Stubborn as a mule, cute as a button, persistent, perseverates on any button that makes noise. Since OT started brushing therapy, all he wants to do is go to OT, out the door and down the hall. I understand why, it feels really good. I was told he could do nothing, but he can match to a field of 16, and we don't ask typical ed kids to do that.

Sick kids were back and more healthy, one who missed yesterday was back after an all day eval at the medical center, he was still stressing, but happy to be there, and one left early for a medical eval. My little escape artist made it out the door at least 50 times, but by the end of day he responded to his name coupled with "stop" for the first time ever, and it worked 3 times. That was awesome.

I had 4 of 12 absent today but wish they could have been there as we had fun doing sink and float experiments. The pumpkins floated! (One crayon sank and one floated, same type and size. Our theory is that one had an air bubble in it.)

...I made it through the chaos of a middle school Halloween Party that lasted almost all day! One of my boys was sent to ISS. Another was absent who was supposed to be in ISS so he will be in ISS tomorrow. Two more were just absent. It was a better day than I expected! emoticon

Trish, I love this thread and am making it a sticky topic!

One good thing that happened today is... I got my garage put into enough order that I can park my car in there now. No more scraping ice off of all the windows in the morning! Got rid of a huge amount of flattened cardboard boxes that were really in the way.

Now I'm enjoying a fire in the pellet stove, a slice of pumpkin pie, and Dexter on TV. Life is good!

Yesterday - not one of my boys got in trouble! (However, we had to discuss the consequences for their behavior on Wednesday when a sub was in the room. One students got a full day of ISS on Monday. Three others will have a combination of lunch and afterschool detention. Two couldn't go to the dance last night. And all of them are on warning for Monday's big all school Halloween party. No one flipped out, so it's all good.)

Today, I woke up early with a worsening cold. The good thing - I am forced to stay home and just rest. That removes the hundred things from my 'to do' list (at least for today). emoticon

We had a transition team meeting for a student with autism. I think our plan will help the transition be smooth. (Last night on Extreme Home Make-Over, the home was built for 2 children (and their family, of course) who have autism. Temple Grandin helped with the design. It was awesome!)

Took my dog to the vet today - she has a cold that should be easily taken care of. A relief since the first concern the vet had was a heart condition!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.
