This is “Ms. B” as Brian calls her. She is a teacher’s aide in my son’s Headstart classroom. I can not express how grateful we are to have her working with Brian. She goes so far above and beyond her duties in the classroom.  Ms. B even stays one day a week after school to give individualized extra instruction on skills Brian is working on in class and therapy. She went to the DSAGSL workshop in Cape Girardeau, and is planning on attending some seminars in St. Louis so she can further her education on Down Syndrome and help Brian maximize his potential.  The love and care she gives to Brian and our family is just amazing. We love and appreciate all of Brian’s teachers, but Ms. B has a special place in our hearts.
