I'm glad it all worked out. Aren't you glad you stuck to your gut?

Stephanie said...

I am so glad. That anxious feeling went away immediately. It has now been replaced with a feeling of "I hope I didn't hurt the new teachers feelings too badly."

Thank you for all of your prayers and kind thoughts.

I'm so glad you were able to work things out in your daughter's favor. It's nice to know that some educational administrators listen to parents.

Dee said...

Dawnyel said...

It just takes persistance...and throwing up a few times, but you've got what you need for your daughter! YAY! Hope that sick feeling leaves you soon! :)

Courage is defined as doing something you know is scary, but still doing it! Today, Stephanie you had great courage! Bravo!!!

Oh good Love that principle! And are you sure your not pregnant LOL. That throwing up ness is pretty common over in my land.

Gabriela said...

Steph, so glad you got it worked out and feel better. Isn't it amazing the instincts you have as a mom to protect your children? If we don't do it, no one will. Good job! :)

(I read that you were throwing up before I read about the source of the problem and I was thinking it was time for some Zofran! :))

Stephanie said...

LOL, you all are so funny thinking that I am throwing up for another reason. I possibly couldn't be in that stage, but maybe soon. Hmmmm. I had better go talk to DH about that.

Seriously, I wish I'd done this years ago with Oldest. He'd be a lot better off now. :) Way to be, MOM!

Nettie said...

Yay! I'm glad you were able to get things resolved in a way that makes you feel so much better. I have to say I was thinking you might be preggo, too!

I'm SO GLAD this worked out. Sorry it was so rough for you. Breathe a huge sigh of relief and pat yourself on the back.

So what happened exactly...did you just switch teachers. Or were you able to switch schools. I thought you'd mentioned that getting a variance and moving to another school was your first choice?

Good for you...

It was really nice. M's first teacher was super nice and so sweet. I just don't think it was the best classroom environment for her. The principal called me back when the day was over and we switched her to the class that I thought would best suit her needs. The children in this class are all very bright and well-behaved (except for one). It was a lot easier for me to send her to school today knowing that because of a lot of the children in the class that the teacher wouldn't have to teach beneath her level. Also it was easier knowing that the teacher wouldn't have to spend a lot of the time disciplining.

Now I just feel guilty. Her other teacher was very nice and super sweet. I just don't want her to take it personally. Because it wasn't personal towards her at all.

Guilt is better than pukey in my book.

I am so glad things are looking up. I was sorry to read all this history of your upset stomach... it's so hard letting your child go to school then finding out she isn't in the best hands. I hope this new teacher is better.

Kristen said...

It is great to have a principal who is sensitive to the parents and listens to them. I'm glad for the outcome. Now you can quit puking. :-)
