I am dealing with it now. His teacher last year was great. this year the new one seems to nitpick at every little thing that we do.

Is he in regular classes?  IEP in place?  Just curious, my son hasn't started school yet and I'm hoping we don't have troubles with his teacher!  She seemed sweet when we met her and his IEP clearly states his strengths and challenges, so I'm hoping she will be patient and understanding with him.  It is very scary not knowing, I'm sorry you are having to deal with this :(

I did last year. It was the worst school year he's ever had. I'm praying this new teacher is better this year.

No, He is in a developmental preschool for special needs kids. He has an IEP that she does not appear to be following. I have just had it the good news is the only other school in town just got a few openings for their special needs classroom and I am going down tomorrow.

yep especially when you live in a county that does not really give a damn about any of the special needs kids. we are trying to get out but it is taking longer than we expected

Ben was placed in the gen ed preschool class and I'm not sure how I'm going to like it.  The teacher just isn't very approachable.  I seem to talk more with the aid then the actual teacher.  And I'm the same, I loved his teacher last year.  She's still his teacher of record but really we just see her in passing.  This is our first full week so we will see how the therapy schedule and whatnot go.

We had that last year. His teacher "knew it all". The new teacher seems like she may listen to the parent when there is an issue.

Last year in kindergarden, my son had some difficulties in the classroom.  She never spoke to his speech specialist about them.  I even asked his teacher to see her but his teacher said he should know better. 

My husband and I will make sure to the best of our abilities that his 1st grade teacher will communicate with the specialist if there are any difficulties.

Does threatening to sue the school in my son's 3rd grade year due to his inclusion teacher count? She totally disregarded his IEP, she was just teaching only until she could retire, which she did right after my son's third grade year. He spent the whole year crying and the teacher tried to get him transferred to the EBD classroom at another school. Bi&%#!
