See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Does anyone use the online schooling? Ours is offered by the district. My daughter being in 4th has one teacher & a different program than my 6th grade son. Her teacher is phenominal. Really nice, keeps us informed of things. They even held a "field trip" that we got to go to the zoo totally paid for & meet other homeschool kids.
My son has multiple teachers per subject. All but one are wonderful. They understand some days my son won't work on that particular subject because there is something going on in another one that takes a bit longer. They also understand that "life happens". Kids get sick, internet goes out etc. But one of them, his math teacher, is a thorn in my side. If my son does stuff for others & doesn't get around to math. Or if he is taking an extra day to go over a new topic in math so he understands it perfectly, she is on the phone & sending a MILLION emails complaining that "your son didn't do math today". Mind you, he is required to do 2-3 assignments per week. Which in my mind means he can take the extra days to understand the concept, or that gives him 2 days a week that if he has a project etc he can take the time to do those.
This lady is starting to stress my son out, which I am running damage control with him explaining that I would rather him take an extra day & understand it rather than do it to keep her off his back & he bombs it or has a hard time with the next thing. Sorry this is long. More of a vent/rant than anything. They are supposed to change teachers & my fingers are crossed that she is one they switch! Just kinda wondering if anyone else ran into this & if you just gritted your teeth or if you had to intervene in some way.
