Thank you to our Behavior Techs! You are loved and appreciated!
Behavior therapists. Tutors. Teachers. RBTs. You go by a lot of names. You wear a lot of hats. We have been beyond blessed with so so (so) many good ones. And sometimes you move on. You go on to managing tutors or BCBA’ing or Teaching or Speech Therapying or something totally unrelated. And we are so proud and happy for you, but our heart is broken too.I cry when you say your last goodbye (one just happened and my heart feels all squozed).
It’s impossible to tell these individuals what they mean to our whole family. In them I see so much good that they then pour into my boys. These lessons are lifelong to my family. There’s something so intimate about the real, regular life you share with the day to day tutors. How do you thank someone for something that important?
To do this job you must intimately know resilience, resourcefulness and grit. You sometimes get hit or bit or get things thrown at you. You must smile at times that you want to scream. You must remain calm when your kid is anything but. You must do something 999 times, waiting for the one time it clicks. And when it clicks- please know- you made that happen. You kept on when many others would have given up. You gave it your all 1,002 times- not knowing that was finally going to be the time that it all just clicked.
To those of you that teach, those of you that love the wiggly, hard to focus kids most. I see you. Your passion and heart is some of the best stuff in the world. Like a physician, you give life to so many.
I am so grateful you are part of our story, and we are so happy we get to be part of yours. #aba #thankateacher
