Here are a few things you have to know......#1 I work at the same preschool. I teach music. #2 My dd is 4 and possibly has VERY mild autism. #3 The original teacher she had was wonderful but found a better job...I HAD no other choice but to put her with Mrs. Margie.
A week or so ago the teachers had some free time, so I sat down at a table with Mrs Margie (dd's NEW teacher who is VERY harsh older woman) and another teacher.
Mrs. Margie looks at me and says..."I want you to know that your dd did the VERY first paper she has EVER done in my room today"
(My dd's papers are usually good....half and half...sometimes she is not in the mood and she will scribble....but she has come home with MANY MANY MANY great ones that I put on our fridge)
So I look at Margie and I say "Margie, I know sometimes her papers arent the greatest in class. But I see others that are wonderful.

Maybe you should quit and take your dd out of that preschool. Have you had your dd tested for autism? It might be beneficial for you to have her tested so that she can get the help that she needs instead of being in a classroom where this teacher obviously is not working with your dd.

Well, having her in a special preschool with special services when she hasn't been dx with autism may be doing more harm than good. That's what I'm getting at. You don't even know that it is autism. At any rate, you are obviously very upset and angry with this teacher, do you really think that is helping your dd any? Before you put her in a special school or tell anyone that she may have a mild form of autism, you should have her evaluated. Kids are pretty smart and when you place a label on them that label sticks with them forever. Your dd may not have autism she might just be a different learner. Look at this website, it's filled with wonderful information on transformation education (transzed) learning.
