Thankfully, our kids were allowed to participate in the talent show after all. It was a blast! And, although I might be biased, they really were the best act. No one laughed at them, in fact, they got so much praise for their little dance routine their heads were spinning. They danced to “Beat It,” and wore matching outfits complete with a surgical glove dipped in glitter. This is what it’s all about people. Special ed: 1, Regular ed: well, ok more than we can count, but one is better than nothing so we’ll take it!
Fifth grade graduation was also the same week as the talent show. Soon I will be saying goodbye to the little guy I’ve been working with for the past two years. More on this later, but for now let’s just say my feelings are very mixed on this topic. I sure will miss him though.
