Michelle, I know you will do fine with the school. Just remember to discuss the issues not your feelings. ie: issue one, teachers do not need to be putting their hands on kids in an aggressive way like that...if she needs that kind of intervention, I expect to be called immediately to come to the school. Issue two, child is not intimidated to compete in class work based on this aggression and may interfer with her ability to perform.
issue three: etc. just stick to the facts and the issues and leave the emotions home and you will do fine.
Sara, You need to be taking care of yourself. Have you spoken with your doctors? With that nasty flu bug out there, you cannot be too careful, especially given your history. Praying for all of you today.
I am doing better myself. I have not made paper stuff since our retreat and I miss that, but gardening season calls me! lOL
