LRudder's comment history

As a retired teacher and now volunteer with my therapy dog at Fairyland School, I want to clear up what appears to be a misunderstanding about the support Faith has received at school. While working with Faith last year, I was treated to a pleasant, happy child who loved every opportunity to be near my dog. I started bringing my dog to Fairyland School in November after Faith was hurt. The principal and teachers received permission from the parents prior to my therapy sessions. My dog and I work mainly with the 4th/5th graders, so I didn't see Faith until last year. The article in my opinion implied that the school was not supportive during Faith's physical and emotional recovery. That was not my observation at all. I wonder how many teachers, staff members, special support service employees were interviewed for this article. I'm afraid many people who read the paper will have a slanted view of Faith's life at school. She is a precious girl as is evident in the video and even more so when you meet her in person. I admire her bravery! Because I love dogs and agree with the two previous comments, I am especially proud of Faith for not being afraid of all dogs now.
