Because I'm a
Across the hall from us, now that we're housed in the high school (and btw: my role is still being defined. I think the 'powers' are getting closer to figuring it out. Whatever. Admin assistant with some twists is how I view it.), is a classroom where a group of incredibly patient, gentle (yet firm), thoughtful, heart-warming ladies work with students who have special needs. They provide their young charges with support, encouragement, direction, guidance, and infuse all they do with respect, dignity, a sense of belonging and yes, love! I've seen these Educational Assistants work magic daily over the past couple of weeks, as well as in previous years, when, back in my teacher-days, I taught in the same classroom we're currently in. I've had the privilege of teaching special needs students, and in so doing, received support from the EAs as well. It takes a really remarkable person to undertake such a role, and these women are, every one, remarkable.

They're all kind of the same, kind of different. Hope the EAs will like them.
Thanks so much for dropping in; you've added sparkle to my day!
