Just a year ago I was blogging about how nervous I was about Jazz ie transitioning into our own school district. She had been safe and protected at Ohio Valley Voices since she was 2 years old and I was not sure how she would fit in with her hearing peers at a regular school. I was so scared and so sad to leave such a wonderful part of our lives behind.
And now we are a year later and Jazzie has done so much better than we could have ever hoped for. Not only was she able to keep up with her hearing peers, she is outscoring them in many different area's.
The beginning of the school year was not easy. It was difficult for Jazzie to get used to the new school and to a completely different school routine. As if that wasn't enough, she had to deal with her dental surgery and her second cochlear implant surgery. But like the true superstar that Jazzie is, she came back out on top. I am SO tremendously proud of her and everything she has accomplished. Not just in years past, but especially this year.
She has made new friends, the kids and teachers really like her, she has worked hard, achieved near perfect scores in all area's and loves school, just like she did before. She once again proved that my fears were not necessary because she is amazing and can overcome anything that is thrown her way.
I am proud of her beyond belief.
