My ds has been in school since he was 3. The first school was wonderful! I miss that school so much! He had only been there for four months and we (the teachers, school bus driver, teachers aids had been a like one big family) they cried when we left. We purchased a house so we had to move. I transferred him to a pre K program (it was terrible) He was there for about 2 months. Then in September, I transferred him to public school pre-k. I Loved and adored the teachers, ds was a bit on the wild side. Hyper (inherited) however, academically on point! He was on a level of 65% (good behavior) and 45% I wouldn't say bad or terrible, ds was just being ds. It can be bothersome at time, but its a maturity issue. Then he goes to Kindergarten and this school has been a problem every since. (cont)Answer Question
OMG! The school year started off terrible. The class was over crowded, more than the state allowed. After nothing being done, I spoke to the Board of ed and told them, if they didn't do something about this I would be contacting the state. I and other parents had been furious. They broke up the classrooms and made them smaller. The teacher he was assigned to was actually a 2nd grade teacher. She complained just about everyday, there was always something. Not just my ds but others as well. One day I came to school and she was gone for 3 days. I asked her what happened and she told me she just couldn't take it. RED FLAGS going up. Now mind you, this is not just my ds. She told me she had twins at home and she had many things to do and yadda yadda. Right then my gut told me to have him moved. She was not and is not prepared to deal with toddler - school age children.Â Â Moving forward a bit because this is getting long.

Anyways, I sat in the class room a couple of times and noticed she has no structure, no formatted way to deal with these type of K students. Every 5 minutes 1 interrupted the class to go to the bathroom, reading time was terrible (sitting on the rug) she was interrupted, I don't know- about 17x . The kids got bored started talking to one another and so on. She was working on something with them, while she was in the front of the class, the lil people in the back of the class had been struggling. I took my time in assisting them with the task. This has happened more than one.They love it when they see me come in the classroom, they greet me and give me hugs.
The teacher has no upbeat happy tone, especially when one of the kids does something, her tone changes, instead of stern more of an annoyance. My son was supposed to color (something) I asked him what happened to his crayons (she, the teacher said) tell your

mother what happened. You had been playing with them and I tossed them in the garbage, I'm like what?
Then yesterday my son tells me on the way home, the teacher snatched his chips out of his hand and gave him a paper cut! Wait it gets better...my son has his STAR WARS inserts that come in the packages, the small pieces of paper, he loves those. He had one in school, should he have had it, probably not. Anyways, she took it from him shredded (tore it up) and tossed in the garbage. I'm like what???? back in the day, when out teacher took something, they gave to the parents at the end of the day. I would never shred something I know he likes right in front of him. ANYWAYS! DS is SO SMART! He waited, took the stuff out the garbage and brung it home to me ( I now have proof) I called the schoool to speak to the principle, she wasn't there, so I checked in with the nurse because he said she had sent him.
