That Teacher Should be FIRED

God help me-and especially the teacher-if this ever happens to my kid.
My nasty temper will show itself, and I will not have much interest in holding back.

Kindergartner Sent Home with Bag of Feces
The father says his son arrived home with the plastic bag of feces and a sticky note that read "This little turd was found on the floor in my room." The teacher has not returned calls seeking comment.
The father says his son spends part of the school day in a special needs class and part in kindergarten.
Knowing this child has some special needs, the teacher was especially wrong for this. I feel so badly for this kid, and so angry with this teacher and the district letting said teacher hold his/her job.

Even if this child was not involved with special needs, he is only in kindergarten! Kids have bathroom-related accidents. It happens. And it is not our job, as teachers, to embarrass them or make them feel ashamed, etc.

Seriously, what was this teacher thinking?!

Yes, it's an inconvenience to have that mess, odor, and everything else it entails. But it is far worse to potentially hurt a child in that manner.

If my kid did this at home, I'd be more upset. At home you have the freedom to use the bathroom as needed. You are in the comfort of your own home. It is your bathroom.

School? Not so much.

I swear....Lord help me if something like this happens to Aidan in kindergarten. My big mouth will make quite the stink.

That makes me so angry. It seems to me if she is doing something like that it is time for her to leave the teaching profession, if not by firing at least by her own will. She definitly seems to not be enjoying it anymore.

That is horrible!!!!! I agree, the teacher should be fired.

ERRR...this teacher gives all teachers a bad name. The ones that make the headlines are the ones that have absolutely NO common sense. Geez. It's ridiculous.

Andrea said...

And these rare cases are why it scares me to send me child to school. GRRR... this teacher has a mental problem.

That is horrible, that teacher def. needs to be fired!

Private schools, private schools! I'm sure she'll lose her job & she'll be lucky to scrub toilets for her next job.

To think there are even parents like this!

I actually thought you were quite reserved in your response to the situation. I can think of a million different things I would say/do to that teacher. Most of which would get me arrested.

Oh my gosh, that is beyond awful. I have no words....our Kinders have accidents occasionally but they are still treated with respect as it's cleaned up. As it should be.
