Today I complained on a teacher. I have never had to complain on a teacher before...I will always have a great deal of respect for the good ones out there, as it is not an easy job!! We have been so lucky with our kids to have had amazing teachers.
I ate lunch with my son after his dentist appointment and witnessed another class' teacher being rude and hateful towards her students, all of whom are 4-5 years old.
You would think she would have been on her best behavior with a visitor in the lunchroom....makes me wonder what her behavior is like when nobody else is around!
I couldn't not say anything and keep a clear conscience, so I e-mailed the vice principal and principal when I returned home.
I am so, so thankful that my son does not have that teacher!!!
A great teacher will have kids wanting to come to school everyday, while a bad one will make them miserable and hating school, quite possibly for the rest of their school career.
If you are a teacher, I salute you for keeping your cool and being patient with your students. I think if you ever get to the point where you are snapping at kids, yelling at them, calling them "babies" and making them cry at lunch (saw it today!)...then maybe it's time for a career change...or a very long vacation.
What do y'all think?
