I feel depressed from all this (caution EXTREME language)
BTW she TOTALLY misconstrued what I said. I made reference to her extended absence at the beginning of the year (read: I said "your absence" in reference to the classroom) and while I meant the shitty condition of there being several subs over time and zilch in communication from them which wasn't to do with her at all and no one knowing his baseline, she took it as me digging at her for being home with her son while he recovered from open heart surgery and my not caring about how he almost died. Never mind that I had no way to know ANY of that, it's not what I meant!
If that's not bad enough, this other chick who I hesitate to call a principal but for the fact she has the title, refuses to let me explain myself. Like 100% communication cut off. I can't ask how my sons day went, nothing. She swears THAT kind of communication isn't being restricted but she won't read my emails or take my phone calls. I'm supposed to "give her time and space" with 3 weeks to go in the year.
Here's the grand Mack daddy cherry of horse shit: his IEP was May 7th. I'm holding onto an unsigned IEP while I decide to accept/reject the offer of FAPE where they want him BACK IN HER CLASS next year. I can't guarantee she won't take something else the wrong way and BOOM cut off again. And his behavior has tanked (colors based thing) coinciding with the beginning of this whole ordeal.
I swear that I stepped out of adulthood and into elementary school. What job in the world lets you forgo part of your job because you "feel hurt" by someone. FFs. I heard my beloved grandpa died on my 15 minute break at Taco Bell. I was manager in charge and people were depending on me so what did I do? I wiped my tears and finished my shift. That's what adults do.
And all I want to do is explain myself and move past it but now I'm forced to decline FAPE and request alternate placement.
Thanks for letting me get that out. And screw that principal. And the teacher to a lesser face palm type way. People need to get their shit together.
