I don't know what action to take with my daughter's classroom situation. I guess she is so distracted by all the other kids that she asked the teacher to be seated far away from them & alone. The teacher was fine with it. I am proud of her that she took the initiative to ask... but the classroom shouldn't be so loud that she can't concentrate. The teacher cannot control the kids at all.
Also, my daughter brought up that the teacher is on her Iphone or Ipad all day and never tells the kids anything when they're acting up. This is so frustrating. This teacher is very unorganized.. her room is always a disaster, schoolwork isn't specific with directions or return dates...
I've considered switching her to the only other 2nd grade teacher in the school.. but the kids in there are unruly too and I've heard complaints from parents about that teacher too.
I've set up a one-on-one meeting with the teacher in a few days. Not sure what to say though.. I feel like I might start yelling at her! Advice, please!

Voice your concerns with her. Write down all the things that you want to discuss with her beforehand. If you are not satisfied &/or there is no improvement then call & sit down with the Principal. If you can bring your DH/SO with you for the meeting with the Teacher then he can add in his concerns too. My DH & I sat down with the Director of my Son's Preschool last year with a list of concerns about the Teacher & some other things related to classwork. There was an improvement within a week & even the other Mom's approached me & said they saw improvements too. Unfortunately some Parents feel that they shouldn't say anything or else the Teacher will take it out on their child. They are scared to make complaints. It works just the opposite way. I bet other Parents have the same concerns as you but are not saying anything. Be your childs advocate! GL!
