Do Teachers have to have the last word??
Just thought I would post this before I forget. Yesterday recieved a note in my SK son’s bag stating that they wanted me to sign a form stating that my child be tested for a speech and language pathology tests. WTF.
number one who are you TEACHER
number two are you asking me or telling me to sign something I feel is so not true….
This bologna has to stop. My youngest son has no problem with speech or hearing.. it’s bull shit.. You want to label him put that slip of paper in his school file and pretend that the problem is on him..He knows how to sound out his words he hears me even when I’m talking to his back. I have always made him pronounce all his words right from the start. Even when there are some mom’s out there who think it’s cute when they same something wrong like “peas” instead of please . I make sure they would say it the right way.
My son is trying his hardest to study his Alphabet he knows 24 letters now from sight where as last week he only knew 18. The teacher says he is behind and it’s like her starting with a JK student. Well technically I could have had him start school this year if I really wanted to, but they don’t take that in to consideration that he just turned 5. OH no 5 they have to be spelling , writing and reading in order to what MAKE THEIR JOB EASIER.. Let me tell you this is their was such a problem, wouldn’t they JK teacher has mentioned something last year??? and then it’s the Oh they have to stay focused and they have to participate more.. Like I say Maybe your boring repeating yourself all the time and kids just ZONE out….maybe he’s a listener more then a contributor It doesn’t mean he is being neglected or not able to ramble and talk at home.. SHit my kids won’t shut up once I pick them up from school.
I think the problem is is that there are a few students who are very needy and will not stop with the endless banter and questions that entice or make other’s just want to say shut up already. Those are the kids who go towards the daycare after school and then go home at 8 o’clock at night and then their parents ignore them or don’t have time for them. so they have to be that way at school because that’s all the attention they get… But my kids get all the attention they need, I listen , I do for, I even over do for sometimes and they get the full truth and no phoney oh, lets talk about this later or I can’t discuss that with them in the room. My family is an open book and my kids are involved in discussions and decisions.. why shouldn’t they be. I’m not putting the wait of the world on them.. but they are definitely not in the dark about things that are going on around them. my kids don’t need that attention from the teachers .We are told to fear this teacher authority so we do. Then they complain when certain kids take that fear to heart. I was the same way. Sometimes I just didn’t feel I was going to be heard anyway and why bother..So maybe I am raising my kids the same way. I tell them to be more assertive and to speak their minds. And I am learning as we go along but I definitely know that they have their own opinions and voice them freely and frequently when they are with me.. that’s for sure.. So do make a long story short I didn’t sign the note stating it was okay for them to go ahead and test my child. and of course I got a call from the teacher telling me she needs to talk… so I guess after so their will be a confrontation of the sorts where is will tell me how it will benefit my son and I will block her out and just stick to my guns and just kindly say no thanks.. because trust me what I want to say isn’t what she wants to hear .. and they just want you to go along with them… but me I will question the Authority!! even if it takes me after the fact to realize what I am doing I will still try to be up on my game. These are my kids .. I look out for them no one else…
