Teachers

Sometimes I worry about the people that are teaching my kids. My daughter just got home and her costume is RUINED. They had a Halloween party today so I had to send her in a costume or she'd flip out. She comes home and the wings and the headband are broken. I also dread talking to my daughter's teacher because the woman NEVER shuts up. Last night she called and talked for 20 minutes!!!!

My son's teacher assigns homework. FOR A KINDERGARTNER! Not only that but my son has learning disabilities. I find it ridiculous that she assigns homework that is just going to be done BY ME anyways. And she keeps trying to get me to go for a teacher conference but for some reason she's too stupid to understand when I'm telling her "YES I CAN GO THAT TIME!". I was supposed to go last night but she sent a note home saying "how is tomorrow night". NO, tonight I am really ticked off and not wanting to leave the house!

And everytime my kids get something as small as dry skin the school nurse calls and bitches. Hell, my daughter's teacher used to be my son's and they sent him to the nurse because his feet smelled. I'm like "DUH! He's a boy, his feet will stink. Especially if you keep letting him play in puddles on the playground!!!" They called me a few days ago about the dry skin on my daughter's back(which is eczema) and were saying they thought it was a yeast infection. This made me want to smash my head into a wall. If the school nurse doesn't know the difference between yeast and eczema then I REALLY fear for my kids. I know it's eczema because I took my daughter to the doc already.

End rant for now but I'm sure I'll have more to gripe about later. These people irritate the crap out of me.

Oh my goodness, it sounds like the school. Things were never and hopefully never WILL be that bad at school. If anything with the sickness it was really hard to convince the nurse that you felt ill!!

Honey that is awful, I would ask to have a talk with the Head Teacher... erm oh Principal??

It sounds awful and if you've really had enough I would consider sending them to a new school...

I'm sorry but that is actually disgraceful. And they all sound a bit backwards if you ask me. Like not all there..if that makes sense. I would be pretty angry if i had the nurse calling me all the time to tell you there is " something wrong" with my child when in fact it turns out it's something you already knew about >.<

They should know this!!! That is their job and they aren't doing them very well. I seriously advise you to just go up to the school and say like look i have no other time for this i need to talk to you i have things to be getting on with and i seriously need to talk about the care my children are getting at this school and i am not impressed at all ect ect . Let them know yo are serious. Because as you said you are worried and it cant go on. You send your children to school putting your trust in teachers and nurses you don't expect this cos its not acceptable. I'm sorry im rambling but thats wound me up and they arent even my children =|

Abbyka~I completely feel your frustration, My daughter attends a school that is grades 7~12, I personally think it was an experiment gone wrong! The teachers are constantly belittling the kids, telling them no bathroom or water breaks...bullshit I tell ya! ive done the homeschool thing for 2 years but being that our daughter is an only child, I feel compelled to let her go to public school...I really wish there was a private school with a required uniform here!

My son just got home and guess what, his mask is missing! I just got back from the store and spent what little I had left replacing my daughter's costume. Now I have to replace his too! I just called to yell at the teacher and surprise surprise, no one is answering the phone!

I was at one time a nurse who worked in a school.We developed an All about Me book.It was a child written companion Everyone who came into contact with the child could add to the document (an A5 binder)including the parents/teacher/therapists/support staff/doctors
If talking was difficult we wrote notes,if someone wanted to talk this would be communicated.
The families who used it found it helpful to cut through repeated explanations and it helped with multi-professional communication.Other didn't like it but I hope it may be of value.

I'm sure that even if I wrote down everything about my kids and gave them the book they'd still find something to call and whine about that isn't an issue.
