You know I have a special needs student in my class, Jenny, right?
Our district bows down to her, because she has lawyers who tell her what her child needs. Make sure you understand that. Her lawyers tell mom what her daughter needs at school. What she deserves.
The Wednesday before Spring Break we had an awards assembly. The day before, when I sent notes home for the parents of the award winners, the students found out who was getting the awards. Jenny asked why she never wins an award. I casually told her that many students haven’t won an award yet.
Jenny’s mom complained that we weren’t comforting Jenny enough (we being my assistant and I).
