I haven't been around much lately, and I know there are a lot of new people here who won't remember this, but some of you might. Last year, fifth grade, was horrible. David (AS), had this teacher who was a real piece of work. Piece of something, anyway. I ended up getting David put into a different class, but the damage was done.

Anyway, today I got to talking to another mom, whose son was in that class last year. I hadn't ever spoken to her before. I know this kid to be a really sweet, helpful, honest, good-mannered, pleasant young man. It turns out that he's got ADD. When we were talking about teachers and whatnot, I mentioned that David had been in Mrs. B's class, but it hadn't worked out, because we had "issues". The mom's eyes lit up, and she started telling me about the problems her son had had with her. It was the same stuff! Giving him endless detentions for "choosing" to not focus on his work.

But get this, okay. I thought I'd heard it all, but apparently Mrs. B. told this nice, sweet kid with ADD, I quote:

"Would you do your homework if I put a gun to your head?"

I mean, what the...?!

I don't know why I wanted to share that. Probably because I was so thrilled to hear that someone else had experienced this woman's true nature. Apparently the mom put in a complaint to the school district. Our school is cutting 14 teachers because of budget issues. I sure hope she's one of them, but I know she won't be, because she's been there for 150 years. One can hope.

Well, it's all water under the bridge now, so to speak. Both my son and her son were in that teacher's class last year, and have moved on.

There is a possibility that my younger son will have her in a couple of years, but probably not, since the principal knows I don't want anything to do with that foul woman. :) I'm not one to blow up and lose my temper, but I did with her. She'll probably specifically request not to have my other child in her class, just so she doesn't have to face me at conferences. She'd probably give my son a daily caning just for being my kid! lol!

I just don't get it. If our kid had even breathed the word gun they would be suspended as quick as a button!! So how come a teacher can say this?

Glad to see you will not allow your younger guy in her class. I am worried Nic will get chris's 5th grade teacher next year if he goes back and she told chris to his face that he was lazy. Damn Biotch.
