I think she might just be the BEST kindergarten teacher ever!! I am confident that there are four wonderful Kindergarten teachers at Heritage Trail, but I was really hoping that Leah was going to be put in Mrs. Buell's classroom. When we were talking with the principal before school, we asked for two things in Leah's teacher:
Other Staff at Heritage Trail
Mrs. Smith is the teacher's aide in Leah's classroom. Just like Mrs. Buell, she goes over and beyond to watch out for Leah and make school a safe place for her. For example, every morning she wipes down Leah's special spot that she goes for her medicine. They set up a chair out in the hallway so Leah does not need to go into the nurse's office to get her medicine and be exposed to any of the sick children in there. I volunteer in the classroom and have seen Mrs. Smith in action. She is so good with the kids. Put Mrs. Smith together with Mrs. Buell and you have an outstanding team!! Their love and care for the students is evident. We are so very thankful for both of them.
Mrs. Anderson is the school nurse. We are thankful that she is there watching out for Leah and taking care of her. Every day, Leah visits her to take her enzymes before snack and lunch. She has been very good at communicating with us if they have any concerns about Leah during the school day. We feel confident that the staff at Heritage Trail is doing their part to protect Leah's health to the best of their abilities.

We are so thankful to have an amazing family that support us without wavering. They walk with us on this journey as we hope and pray for a cure for Leah. We just returned from a great trip out to South Carolina to visit with Phil's family for Thanksgiving. Yes, we decided to share the goofy family photo. We did get some really nice ones, but this one has so much character, we had to share. Fun times! Our girls LOVE playing with their cousins, whether it is here in the Chicagoland area or they have to drive across the country. It is always worth it!!
