How to go about contacting sons school: My son is 9 and in 3rd grade. Has always been a good student. And made lots of friends and been kind to classmates. He reads at a 6th grade level and has ive always gotten compliments from his previous teachers about him being on task. We recently moved and today would be my sons 3rd day at his new school. His new teacher “Mr.Smith” has been saying some not so nice things to him. And now he no longer wants to go to school cuz of him and is in tears about it. Asking me if he can have a new teacher. Mr.Smith asked my son why he hadnt done a problem and he told him he didnt understand. He proceeded to ask my son if he was in special ed… my son said no, and then the teacher pulled him outside and asked him if he called his last school if theyd tell him he was a bad kid or a good kid. Im going to call the school tomorrow about this. But im wondering if im over reacting. I feel bad for my child. And his feeling being hurt by an adult at a brand new school. What would you do?
Help a mama out and respond anonymously on our forum. How do I go about contacting my sons school?
I would be there waiting for that teacher in the morning Monday!
Oh hell no. I’d call the school and let them know… no adult should ever speak to a kid that way. I’d be livid
Definitely not over reacting. Mr. Smith sounds like a dick. He shouldn’t be speaking to students that way. I would schedule a meeting with the principal and Mr. Smith and maybe file a complaint?
Call and ask or the principal and speak to them about the situation if they don’t handle it find your schools superintendent and contact them …that’s not acceptable behavior from a teacher.
No child should be talked to like this because if they had a serious issue with your child they should have called you to set up and time to either zoom you or meet with you in person. This moment in their lives could change their entire perception on school I know something like this changed my sons
Screw calling the school I would be there when the doors open demanding a meeting
Get him out of there, this is an issue we have with small town schools.
Once it starts it doesnt stop.
How do you contact the school? You march yourself right up there
I would be at the school asking for an explanation, teachers seem to think they have a special HOLD over kids I always tell mine if they feel uncomfortable answering a question tell them to phone home and ask me
I wouldnt even be calling. I’d be marching on in there! Hell no!
Go in. That teacher sounds like a bully.
EMAIL and then call! Always always have some communication in writing. Been there done that! Speak with the teacher, then the principal. If it’s still not handled, take it to the school board.
I would be at the school tomorrow morning.
I would be meeting that teacher in the office first thing Monday morning and doing my best not to throw a huge fit
You can also go to the school district to file a complaint
I would have already gotten some charges if a teacher treated my child like that…… my family is something no one hurts
Call the school! Never tolerate anything bad a teacher says to a kid.
I’d have him pulled immediately
That’s not over reacting in my opinion… He shouldn’t be rude like that, or discussing anything like that with your child.
Talk to the principal and set up a meeting with the teacher present.
Go to the school and complain VERY loudly - especially about this unkind [email protected]
Email the school so their is a paper trail. So when you escalate to the education department you have it all there.
Straight up to the School and get it sorted right away.
Walk into the office ans ask to speak to the principal because that was inappropriate. I know they will want to set up a meeting with the teacher. Be prepared for them to take the teachers side and don’t let it slide!
I’d show up and have some words with mister douche man
I’d call the school
if the school doesn’t do something
Go to the school board
The way his new teacher is acting
Is in appropriate
Go in IN PERSON first thing Monday morning, and get your son a new teacher. If they won’t switch him, get him a new school. This sort of problem doesn’t get better by itself, and it’s also unlikely to get better after you complain.
A fresh start seems best for all concerned.
That’s no way to treat a student, much less a new student that’s trying to adjust to new surroundings. Sounds like a bully to me. Yeah, he would hear from me, but I would also include the principal in my meeting.
I wouldnt call. They would have to look at me. If the school dont do anything go above them and go to the board of education.
As a former teacher, it sounds like Mr. Smith needs a new profession! I’m so sorry your son is going through this. A teacher should be there to support the transition, not belittle a new student. I agree with what Lindsey said above - document. Start with the teacher, then escalate it to the principal if needed. So sorry - I hope things get better soon.
Nope that wouldn’t happen. I would be calling the school and having the class switched. That teacher shouldn’t be teaching young Kids. Well any kids for that matter. This momma bear would have someones ass on a platter for doing this
I don’t know why you would ask a question like that? Walk into the school and ask for the damn principal
I would be at that the next morning with my child and that teacher would not treat my child that way. We would be having a meeting immediately.
I’d be up at that school first thing in the morning. If they won’t do anything about that teacher then you keep going higher up until it’s dealt with
I’d be at that school first thing in the morning. I can not believe a teacher could be so cruel!
That’s out of like 100% the teacher is there to teach not berate. Definitely request a different teacher at least
Not to be tolerated. Not only is he directly insulting a little boy but he is simultaneously mocking and insulting the special ed community. As if that is even relevant in the first place. He should not be working with children with an attitude like that.
I would be putting something in my kids book bag and record what’s happening in class or have him take something in his pocket to record things. So that you have proof to take to the school board
request a meeting with the teacher and principal. If there isn’t a resolution, then go to the superintendent. Always have a paper trail and documentation. Sadly, you have to go through the chain of command. If the superintendent doesn’t help then go to the board of education.
Don’t call the school … you walk in there and demand to see mr smith and the principal … and you go to town on them both !!! That shit has to stop now
Call google phone number tell them your comming to address the principal about a situation with a new student and my son’s name and some things I do not agree with then I would make sure him or her and the teacher Mr. Smith know exactly what my concerns were.or then I would contact the Superintendent over the school system in your area
Hell NO. I would be raising hell. There’s already so many stresses on kids these days and for a teacher to act as a bully I would go there Monday morning with your child, don’t make him go back into that class. This makes me so sad for your sweet boy, I hope y’all get answers!!
Schedule a conference with the teacher and principal. If you aren’t satisfied, go to the superintendent, the school board. Etc. That teacher’s behavior is absolutely not to be tolerated!!!
I’d get arrested… you don’t want my advice
I’d be at that school Monday morning waiting for the doors to be open and tell them my child and teacher both were going to be present as I talked to the principal about the issue also I would make sure my child was moved from his classroom that day
Call and give them some shit, that’s not acceptable!! Show your son, you’ve got his back!!
I would be mad too I would be going to the school first thing and talking to the principal
Go in and ask to speak to the principal or vice principal …don’t address the teacher yourself …the teacher can twist your Convo and say you came off in a threatening manner …trust me …and this way there is a record of the issue Incase it doesn’t get resolved because if you need to take it further to lay a complaint with the school board …the principal will have no choice but to discuss the issue before it gets out of hand …who knows …this teacher could possibly have prior complaints …don’t be intimidated …it’s your baby and something isn’t right … brightest blessings
You don’t need to call. You need to go up to the school and notify the principal about that teacher.
I would have been all over that teacher asking him who he thought he was talking to a child like that. You simply walk with your son into the school the next time you take him and go speak to the principal while your child waits outside the principal’s office. I would demand he be put in a different classroom and that “Mr Smith” be reprimanded for the way he spoke to your child. I would also
Uh, nope. I’d be there bright and early asking for a parent, teacher, principle meeting.
Have him pulled from the class and placed in a new one before you leave that school.
I’d be outside waiting on mr smiths car … I don’t think you’re over reacting
I’d be at the school In the office first thing in the morning…not the first time I’ve done it or had a teacher fired
How? Walk in and request a meeting with the principal. My daughter is at a new school for 3rd grade and when we went to meet the teacher he blatantly ignored her. So I asked for a meeting and told her my baby needed a new teacher and why. By the next day, I had received an email from the new one. And if they say no, they mention how the school board (or whomever) would live to know that their teachers bully the students and administration allows it. Don’t play with me
Heads would roll! Go get him mom
Call the school , no reason for this .
Call out the teacher
My daughter’s teacher was like this. I pulled her out of school and did independent study online
I would be waiting at the school when it opens on Monday. That is a real issue.
Ohh hell no! I’d be there Monday morning confronting this bully teacher!!
I would be pissed. Talk about making your child have self doubt and self esteem issues. No kid is a “bad kid”. Good grief.
Nah walk right up into that school & demand to speak with him and the principal!There’s no reason for that teacher to act like that. If that’s how he talks to students he needs a new profession because that isn’t the right one for him.
Absolutely not over reacting. Call the school and set up a meeting with the principal and this teacher.
Momma, you are Not overreacting in the least! I’ve already have a reputation at my kids school cause I’m “that mom” that don’t let shit slide. Be your son’s voice, make I scene if need be to get your point across. I told my kids principle so long as they did what they were supposed to do I’ll be the nicest mom they ever met, but as soon as they do something like that, I would become the biggest bitch they ever met. Let them know your not a push over, and they’ll listen and take action
If go into mr smiths office and have a word to him !!!
No you’re not over reacting. Call both schools. That teacher is a dick!
I would call the principal and complain. That’s rude. Maybe switch teachers too
Make more money working part time at home. Start earning $ 15,000 or more a month just by working from home online. I was paid $ 16,842 last month and spent only 2 hours in my daily life. This is what I do.
I wouldn’t call I would be there waiting on those doors to be unlocked Monday morning.
Go to the school. Don’t call because they will have a chance to just ignore it.
Demand a meeting with the principal. Tell principal during meeting that you are demanding your child be changed to another class. That day. No matter what.
Tell the principal what the teacher said about your child being “special ed” which is incredibly offensive to parents of special needs kids.
Demand this incident is put on the teachers record or you will go to the superintendent and make sure they know about the full incident.
Do NOT allow them to say your child heard wrong or that the teacher is kidding or “just that way”. Because none of that behavior is acceptable.
If things don’t change that day, go to the superintendent and make them aware. If things still don’t change, go to the media.
I would be on the office face to to face with the teacher. Then I would politely ask what was said to my child . Then act Accordingly. Sometimes children have a hard time with change an a new school and new faces can be difficult for them.
Holy crap! Nip this in the bud now, both with the teacher and the principal! Good luck!
I’d be march my ass through the front doors of the school as soon as they open on monday and walk straight into the principles office and put a complaint in… if your child is that uncomfortable after 3 days at a new school u need to step in and advocate for him babe it’s not acceptable for a teacher to speak to any student like that!!
Nope, you are not over reacting! Have home moved to another class.
Go to the school and raise hell, Mr Smith is way out of line
No. You are not over reacting set up an appointment with principal and the teacher at the same time. Have son there and let him hear what hey say with you there and then ask him his side and make them listen. This way everyone hears the same. I had some very bad experiences with teacher and principal. Took my son to a counselor and had it all documented. It hit the news paper and the government came and cleaned up the school. Several
Lost jobs. Support your child. An abusive teacher nor a bully teacher should never be tolerated
Email the school superintendent’s office. Everyone’s emails should be on the school website tell them you want to have a meeting.
Definitely call the school
Id be AT the school raising hell… In absolutely no way is that acceptable from this “Mr Smith”. You are not over reacting at all.
I already commented on the previous post about this - I would go directly in person to the school to speak to the principal. I would also go directly to the superintendent as well!
I would physically go to the school and talk to the principal and see what’s going on, some teachers are not great but most are amazing. I always contacted the school in person is there was ever a problem, don’t just send an email
O hell no thats totally uncalled for
No you are not over reacting. This teacher is an arragant fool and is picking g on the new kid
Plz keep us updated sorry you’re going through this
He’s probably an all lives matter cult too sickening
Go speak to the school principal asap!
I would totally send my child to the school with a voice recorder in his pocket and catch everything that prick says so I have full excuse free evidence, then once I got that I would march my ass up there and wait for him to unlock his door to ask him if he’s got something wrong with him that makes him feel better about him self by picking on my child.
Nope ain’t no way in hell any one would ever speak to my child like that.
This is why my children are finishing this year out then home schooling. This world is absolutely trash now a day and they do more bullshit then learning …
Good luck girl
I wouldn’t call the school. I would go to the school! It’s completely uncalled for and unprofessional!! It’s not uncommon for one school to have taught something that a different school hasn’t yet.
I would take this all the way to the top. You are NOT overreacting.
I wouldn’t ring the school I’d go straight to the teacher and let them have it. He’s a bully and it will show that you don’t tolerate bullying
I would be down at that office as soon as possible. Depending on what I find I might even get a restraining order on the teacher and ask for my child to be moved to another classroom.
I’d be at the school, not calling
I’d go to the school and kick the door in. That’s unacceptable bullying
I would be at the school when doors open and meet with principal or superintendent. Don’t give them time to cover it up. I’d probably also wait until they talked with the teacher.
This is definitely concerning. I would have a conversation with the teacher and get their side as well and then take that information to the principal. I do agree email is a good idea to keep a “paper” trail. I would email the teacher saying exactly what your child said.
Always send an email as well. Keep a paper trail
I would be on the phone with the superintendent!
make them change his teacher!
I would take it to the school board and let them know how your boy is being treated no one should be treated like that little brother you stay strong have Mom take your school to the board good luck keep us updated
