A Love Letter to My Son’s Teacher

To my son’s teacher,

From the time I found out that Nathan had autism I started thinking about school and I always got anxiety.

Once he entered his second year of preschool my anxiety started going through the roof. I was so worried about him going to Kindergarten. 

I would cry most nights thinking about it.

He was safe in preschool. He had routine. He loved his teacher. 

I would wonder who his new teacher was going to be. I would pray every single night that God would protect him always and give him the best people in his life to help him continue to grow. To protect him like I would.

To keep him safe.

The answer to my prayers came when I got the call from you. The moment I spoke to you, I knew God had answered my prayers.

Stacey, Nathan has been blessed more than you could ever know. 

You listened to every single concern without judgement.

You listened to every single need of Nathan’s.

You always go above and beyond to make sure we know Nathan is good.

The way you call your kids, your little “love bugs” makes my heart smile. 

The fact that Nathan runs to you to give you a hug every single morning is amazing. He doesn’t do that with anybody.

You have been so patient and understanding with how we deal with Nathan’s anxiety. You understand that some days he “just needs a break.” And his little penguin that he holds every day to calm his anxiety is the absolute best!

You have given us so much guidance and show that you understand what we are going through.

When you were out and called to make sure that Nathan was ok, showed me your compassion and that you think about your students above everything.

You are an extraordinary woman and I can truly say that you are the blessing that I prayed for every single night.

Thank you for loving my son.

We don’t know what we’d do without you as a part of our lives and as a part of Nathan’s team.

Love,

Heather

My Name is Heather and I’m married with two children. Nathan who is 5, non-verbal, and on the spectrum. And a little girl named Chayse who is 1 and seems to be NT so far. I decided to start my blog Through Nathan’s Eyes as something therapeutic for myself. But then I started sharing it on my Facebook page and I’ve had several people tell me they didn’t know anything about Autism until I started sharing. Finding Cooper’s Voice is what helped me get through the initial diagnosis and I am forever grateful for the group that I have been a part of. You can follow our journey on my blog https://throughnathansblueeyes.blogspot.com/, my Facebook Page Through Nathan’s Eyes and I recently started an Instagram Page  Through Nathan’s Eyes.
