DD's preschool teacher isn't exactly a people person. She's the type that seems to want to just do her job without people bugging her. This is fine with me as long she is good to the kids and DD has never complained, so I've been okay with dealing with this non-people person preschool teacher.
Yet today when I went to pick DD up, the teacher seemed very irritated with DD after just a few seconds of her not being able to decide whether to ride the bus or go home with me and I did not find it appropriate the way she was speaking to DD.
Picture how irritated you would be if your child went back and forth with their decision for 30 minutes...THAT'S how irritated the teacher was...after not even a minute...and she was maybe involved in 15 seconds of it.
Is this something I should overlook? Am I over-reacting? Should I say something to someone?
BTW...we cannot change classes and DD will be in her class next year too.

I think to me it would depend on what she said to the child and how she said it. However, I can understand how bugged the teacher maybe because after all she is with 15 or more children all day or even half days. At the end of the day they are tired just as we parents get. If your child was going back and forth on riding the school bus for 30 minutes I can see how bugged someone could be. After all the teacher has other children she must tend too. As for not being a people person, I think that is okay. You don't have to be a people person to teach. Some adults find it easier to deal with children other than adults themselves. I do have a question, why was your child going back and forth on riding the school bus when you were there to pick her up? Kinda seems a wasted trip to the school if the child was going to be riding the bus home.
