When the minutes drag...

Am absolutely holding my breath.
Jaysen's IEP is on Tuesday. Or at least the conclusion is.
We began the IEP some time ago, but due to unforeseen tweakiness from the Awesome School, it will be continued on Tuesday.

The school social worker met with me today to see how things were going, and also to let me in on the inside scoop.

There have been a lot of changes at the school. I understand this.
But I also feel the "new" resource room teacher is ill-equipped to deal with my child, as well as his Gen.Ed teacher.

Don't get me wrong...these ladies intentions are pure.
Especially Gen.Ed. She is a doll, with a heart of gold.
But that doesn't make her the right teacher for my child.
Not saying she's the wrong teacher...oh for everlovin' gummi bears, the woman is a granola girl.
Everything is peace and love and why-can't-we-all-get-a-long *puppydog eyes*???

Anyway, I was very displeased at the disorganization at the last meeting, and the SW assured me that everyone will be prepared. She also gave the impression that she agreed with my insights, and advised me to "stay on top of things" because this disorganization is just the start.
Contrary to the reports I have gotten, Jaysen has apparently been a little shit. And they have pulled his para (since re-instated), and it looks like everyone forgot how to fill out a proper ABC chart.
Double oy.

I just want the freakin' IEP signed, sealed, and delivered.
Then I will be able to sleep at night.

In the meantime, Jaysen will be starting tutoring in math and reading, as well as piano lessons. can stop laughing.
I will make him practice at your haus.

More later, gators!

Hope it all went ok? I hate that WE have to be the gate-keepers on so many things.

I am interested in how the IEP went and how the piano practice is going.
