Thanks for Understanding Teachers

There are educators and there are educators. Some are good and some are better. (Of course there are those we just won’t talk about).

This post is a special thank you to those who spend their precious time and energy dealing with my kid and other kids like him.

Yes, I know that you get paid. And yes I know that you chose your profession for your own reasons. And yes, I know that you will probably never read this, but if you do then take this as a big warm thank you and a big warm virtual hug.

You are a saint, an angel, and my respite. You have helped me when I felt lost. Please keep up the good work, and on those days when you are feeling down, please know that all of us parents are out here pulling for you.


  1. Although I have never had any autistic students, I think I can speak for most all teachers when I say that teaching has rewards that can never be measured financially. It's really nice to hear appreciative parents--not all!

  2. You are very welcome :) You might like to read my post today, Odd Man Out. (You will probably relate.) Sweet post.

    Nice post. I am not really looking forward to his teenage years because I know some of what is coming. I am just glad that his older brother (for now) is really, really helpful and encouraging. Before we moved he would even find him during recess to make sure that he had someone to play with (different recess times now).
