What should I do now? PE teacher called daughter a name.

My daughter has had issues with her PE teacher since school has started. This teacher likes to have favorites. And of course my daughter isn't one of them. This teacher keeps telling my daughter to not be around or talk to certain people in class and these people are actually my daughter's friends. Today, teacher pulled my daughter aside and told her that she needed to participate in class (they are learning dances). Daughter said to the teacher "I am participating and attempting the dance, but you are not helping me." The teacher then said, "Well you are just back there being a bitch". When daughter told me this I immediately went up to school and had my daughter tell the principal about what had happened. The principal told us that she will be talking with the teacher. I just hope now that it doesn't backfire on my daughter when she has her class again.

  • I would call the superintendent as well as the principal. I would also expect an appolgy from that teacher. If your daughter has more problems with this teacher, I would have her removed from the class.

  • I hope things work out well, you did the right thing. If the teacher had a problem, she should have told you, not her. Kids have it hard enough these days. The only problem is, teachers usually side with the teachers. I hope that the teachers attitude towards your daughter changes. The teacher shouldn't play favorites. It's wrong.

  • NOPE, I would not put up with it. Go to the superintendant ASAP. That is unprofessional behavior period. I would be worried about my child too. I would speak not only with the administrators BUT the teacher as well. Demand she get moved to another class and demand that something more be done to ensure that she does not make your DD's school misirable. Grrrrrr

  • Do not speak to the teacher alone. Have someone there who can witness what she says and her reactions. Who knows, the teacher may even try to deny it. Be your Daughters voice and advocate Mama.

  • I think the principle should have you and your daughter there. When she speaks with the teacher. You should also students if they've seen her bein hateful to your daughter. If nothing come out of it don't stop there.Tell your daughter to hold her head up high. That nasty a** teacher is only trying to take her enjoy and get her out of her class. Good Luck!!
