When is the teacher out of line? Or is she a bully?
We were looking for information on the daily changes & who would be in charge of paperwork for the office & who would receive money due for spirit shirts etc. I waited to meet his teacher & when it was my turn I introduced myself at first things were going well. I explained he is one of the youngest in the 6th grade due to skipping a grade & he had been on honor roll & gifted program in his last school also in the district. As I went into trying to learn the process of who gets what & when things are due who is in charge of the various fees, she stated that it was her and that as his homeroom teacher she would know everything. So I then explained to her that the reason I was asking is because due to the promotion he had received a notice from the nurse the week before about missing shot needed for the 6th grade in Illinois. She did not seem aware of the paperwork the nurse had for us & then I told her that we had the doctor's note on Monday & my son still had the paperwork for the nurse in his folder 2 days & she had not asked for the paperwork. The nurse had been called by me on Monday, we had a fax with the note the nurse needed for the file. I stated do I email you or is my son to tell you he has papers when she looked at my son and called him a bonehead. I was floored by her choice of words. Is this acceptable?
