I don't know what to do. All last year, when Ms. X was actually her teacher, all she would do is complain about how the teacher was mean or said something that embarrassed her. I tried to see both sides of it. My daughter stuggled academically and probably was a bit difficult to deal with. Although, you have to know my daughter. She is "that" child. The one that is extremely soft-spoken and kind-hearted. The child that brings home every stray. The child that hears of your neighbors best friends nephews cat dying and cries for hours. She would never ever have talked back or been disruptive to the class in anyway. She was merely falling behind and needed some extra care to catch up. Suffice it to say, she was held back and this year (with a different teacher) is doing wonderfully. But, though she is doing very well she comes home and says, "Mom, everytime I see Ms. X she rolls her eyes or looks at me funny." or once when she forgot to do a paper that was due she recieved lunch detention (first time she had lunch detention and this is half-way through the year) Ms. X popped her head in the door and asked, "How many papers did you not finish?" My daughter replied only the one paper. The teacher responded with a huff and left the room. My question is... how is that any of her flippin business??? Aaaanyway, these things were concerning but she has taken it to a whole new level this time.
While at lunch my daughter was eating and talking with her new friend. Ms. X came and sat down next to my daughters friend, rolled her eyes and said, "Why are you sitting next to her? She will just get you into trouble."
My daughter said she did not smile. She did not laugh but that she looked like she always does when she is angry.
I am so mad I want to cry.
I spoke to the principle already and he really acted dissmissive. He said he would talk to her and when I offered my number he asked, "Why do I need your number?" DUH! To follow-up with me!!!! Ugh, this WILL NOT be brushed under the rug because she says she was joking. I am going down there tomorrow morning. What do you think???
