DD is in grade 2, and had an awesome teacher this year, one of everyones favorites, parents request this teacher and I have been very happy this year so far. She was set to retire(early) but kept the class as exciting as always, doing lots of interactive science experiments, feild trips, I could go on ... Anyhow for the past 2 weeks she has been away, family issues, and didnt think much of it. The sub they have, dd(who is a great student, and behaves well) has come home each day telling me more horror stories about the sub For example- Saying to a kid who uses crayons instead of pencil crayons "WHATS THE MATTER WITH YOU, DID YOU NOT HEAR WHAT i SAID!" And another day, got mad at a few kids for cleaning up the wrong part of the classroom(bookshelf instead of floor) and then cancelled PE cause 2 kids were talking, and she made the class sit at their desks for 20 mins with their heads down(ya, that will help??)
Yesterday we find out that the original teacher wont be back at all this year....dd is not happy, nor are most parents. Then today dd says that a girl in her class had asked to go to the bathrom and the teacher said NO and then the poor girl peed her pants!! Then the teacher says Oh I guess you should have gone on your own time hey? ANd then sent her to the office....Ive told dd that she should continue to behave and just do the work and not to get too grumpy about the teacher, but after today and what happend to the girl, I am thinking the parents of the girls will say something, I know I would...but I hate to be hearing all this bad stuff everyday for the next 2 months... All i know about the teacher is that she is older, and normaly a higtschool teacher...

I would contact the principle and see if they are looking into getting a permanent teacher for the rest of the year. Last year my son, who was in 5th grade, had a similar experience. They had a sub lined up and before the teacher left the sub was offered a full time job and took it so they had to scramble at the last minute. The sub that they brought in was not very good and the kids didn't like her. I also told my son to just stick it out, although I will never let that happen again. He ended up not liking school at all that year and he is also a good student. I understand wanting to work with the school & that finding good subs is hard although I would be calling and talking to the until something changes. Good Luck!
