Thank you so much for the acknowledgement of our team at the last staff meeting of the year. We truly appreciated the introduction of our team at the first meeting of the year, when you were welcomed as our new administrator. And mentioning us yesterday at our end-of-the-year Bar-B-Que was awesome.
In the previous five years I've taught at CHS, under different administration, the Special Ed. team has never been introduced or recognized in any way.
I felt it would be a good idea just so the other staff would be aware of the psychologists, County personnel, teachers, and paraprofessionals on campus, if nothing else. We are rather busy bees, flitting from classroom to classroom and building to building period by period. It's good to know who is who.
But the respect given by you to introduce us the first meeting of the year, and then announce our timely completion of all our Special Ed. deadlines this year, and the improvement our students--that was an unexpected pat on the back. And also giving credit to the general ed. teachers for working with us to implement the IEPs--our gratitude is unbounded.
It is the norm for us to accomplish these goals, but very special to be acknowledged. Special Ed. staff are normally type B personalities, we just like to do the job without drawing attention--but thanks for announcement. That will make our job with Gen. Ed. easier next year.
