Pout, Rave and Rant

I am so annoyed at the school system here. as most of you know, my wonderful little 4 year old, Bam-Bam has Autism and is in a PreK class with 8 other children just like him that are in desperate need of routine and familiarity in their little world to function properly. They have an amazing teacher. Well today I found out she is apparently too amazing because this Tuesday will be her last day with Bam-Bam's class since they are moving her to another school to deal with a very low-functioning Autism Pre-K class!!!! Could they not have done this next year???? I understand she is more than capable of making a large difference for these children in this new class - but you are now robbing my child (and the others in his class ) of their wonderful teacher who has made strides with each of them! Where the hell is the sense in that????? For those who profess such knowledge about Autism their first concern should have been what all of these changes will do to the children in both of these classes. So the kids will have 2 days to adjust to the new teacher being brought in on Monday to work side by side with his current teacher until Tuesday. Did I mention they have only 2 days left with her???? And 2 days to deal with a new person??? I am so tempted to ask to have Bam-Bam switched to her new class at this other school! But I know that is not realistic. I'm just annoyed at it all. She is really going to be missed. Hard to find GREAT teachers these days so we like to hold on to them with both hands when we do....especially in ESE.
