How do your children do with subs when their teacher is out? Usually Brady is fine as the aide in the classroom is there and he loves her plus they do a lot of activites with the class next door and those 2 teachers are close to Brady as well. He's never had a problem with a sub before until yesterday....the sub was an older man, probably in his 60s or so, I witnessed him telling Brady to use his words instead of crying! Really? Are you kidding me? Brady DOESN'T TALK! After spending 3.5 hours with my son, he didn't infer that Brady was non-verbal? Why in the world would he tell Brady to use his words? Needless to say, I'm having a talk with the principal and his teacher on Monday morning, and Brady will NOT go back to school when his teacher is out...usually she tells me when she's out...I knew she'd be out yesterday. She even texts me when she's sick to let me know she won't be there. Brady is only 4 and not required by state law to go to school, so if she isn't there, he won't be there either. I'm livid!
UPDATE - I spoke with Brady's teacher and another teacher this morning (at the school carnival) about the substitute situation. Come to find out, this man was NOT Brady's sub yesterday. He was a sub in another classroom, who happened to be in the hall when Brady was crying. Still, he had NO right to come up, and intrude on the situation...he DID NOT know my child and I better NEVER see that man again! The teachers have stated they don't like this man, that he tries to tell them how to do their job and such...they have complained about him, but for some reason he keeps getting calls to sub. Needless to say, Brady will NOT go to school if there is a sub in his class.
