Can I request a new teacher for my second grader?
She now doesn't want to read and hates to go to school. At 2nd grade? She finally confessed to me this morning that her teacher yells at the class to the point of making her ears hurt...she commented about how the teacher doesn't let the kids go to bathroom, and on the first day upon picking her up she was crying she had to go to restroom so bad. furthermore there is no communication with the teacher, to me...before, in the first to grades, i would at least get a "smile face" on the communication calendar in her folder...with this teacher...nothing.
Am I holding on too much? I know I have to let go but when should I step in? Isn't 2nd grade a little early to be dreading the teacher? I mean do I still have the authority to get her a new teacher? I want madeline to maintain that excitment to learn but it is fading fast and I want her to get that back before its too late....
i am in tears I just don't know what to do...it just isnt like Madeline to complain like that...
thank you so much for any advice.
