Tia was also very astute in dealing with teachers. She never threatened, but we definitely knew that she had great expectations for us and our relationship with her son. She was also always willing to do her part. We also knew that she knew the law, although she never actually said it, and that she would fight for him if she had to. She never had to... It's quite a balancing act of respecting and appreciating teachers and yet making sure that your child's needs are met, and she walked that line better than any parent I have ever worked with.

I have no idea what Asher's future will hold, but I don't worry about him like I do so many of my other students, because Tia will make sure that this story has a happy ending. There is no question that each of us is better for having known Asher . It's simply a love story...
