While raising my children and teaching in a third grade classroom I took mental notes in order to share my experiences in the future. The stories I share are all true and act as a support system for those parents who may be dealing with similar situations. It is important that we take the power out of the hands of teachers and administrators who are performing in a way that is a complete disservice to the teaching community. It is troubling to imagine children have to deal with poor educators and imperative that we listen to our children and address cruel intentions unambiguously portrayed by so called professionals in our education system.
The following week, during instruction, my son made the bad decision to converse with a friend, but the decision the student teacher made really highlights reactions that are completely distasteful. She informed him that, "You should shut up!" His response to her was, "Do you know that it is disrespectful to speak to anyone that way? I have lost all respect for you." She then said, "I can't believe I wasted my time helping you during my lunch period." Her comment really showed her ability to act like a professional adult. Not! After all they had been through and my kind words of appreciation and my son stepping up to the plate to make things better. This was her way to show him that she was nothing but a child herself. She then gave him an extended detention for his behavior.
