I don't want to go home...


Junior Member
About a week and a half ago one of my sweet students from last year was returned to me (I moved up a grade this year, too.) because she was having terrible separation anxiety in the mornings (long story, issues in the home) and the guidance counselor hoped that because we had bonded last year, I would be able to help. Well, it has been slow going. But in the last three days she has made progress and today she even walked down the hall and did not cry. For me this was success enough for one day!!! But it gets better...as we were packing up and waiting on buses to be dismssed, she came up to me and said, "I used to not want to go to school...Now, I don't want to go home." This is truly an answer to many heartfelt prayers.
