My son and his teacher have had a tough year this year. Into the 2nd week of school everything changed. My son fights with me to go to school daily, says he hates school, will use any excuse he can think of to go to the office to call me and beg me to come and get him. I've met with the teacher, counselor, and principal. He has a 504 plan because he struggles with ADHD. The 504 plan is not followed in all areas, his teacher is very sarcastic with him (and yes I have heard it). My son will admit that he now goes out of his way to annoy her. His teacher showed up at our house unannounced and asked to search his book bag for her cell phone, all because he was the last kid in the classroom. (It was not anywhere in our house. It was found in her trash can, but she let me know there is no way it could end up there on it's own "someone" put it there. No apology. This teacher is moving up to 5th and he may have her again. Help?

This is when you make an appointment with the Principal & demand that he NOT have her next year as a Teacher. I'm sure she doesn't want him in her class either. Nothing against him at all just because of the personality conflict. I also think that the Teacher has no handle on the class & sounds frazzled. But that's neither here nor there. The School will accommodate your request if you are nice about the issue. There must be another Teacher who is more experienced & can handle it better.

Let the Superintendent/ Principal know. Tell them that you will be switching schools if they attempt to place your son with this teacher again.
