We went through something similar with my oldest daughter. She suddenly started referring to herself as dumb and stupid, cried at the drop of a hat. She kept saying nobody would play with her. The night my 6 yearold stated she wished she was dead I began to investigate the situation intensely.
Turned out my child had a teacher spawned from the bowels of the earth. Class rules were NO talking in the hallway, classroom, lunchroom, bathroom.......
If one child got in trouble nobody got recess, ( this is why nobody would play with her, nobody played) The teacher would skip PE if the aide waas gone becausee "she couldn't handle the noise." She then proceeded to tell me how she would paair the children at the learning station " I usually try to take one of the smarter kids like Kim and put them with one of the....well I don't want to say dumb and stupid." Yes this is a direct quote straight form this lunatics mouth. Mind you this was a first-second grade teacher!!!!!!! :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire
Every new lesson was prefaced with " Now you better learn this now beacuse I won't be able to help you on the achievement test."
Needless to say we moved to a new school where my child discovered that school and learning are fun, as is recess. She graduated a year early and 1 year later has her associate degree.
I still see this individual on occasion and would still like to run her over with my car each and every time.
