i want to know why my kids teacher is GONE

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My third graders teacher has been gone constantly this school year. She's in her mid fifties otherwise I'd think she was pregnant or parting or on drugs. She will be gone sometimes a couple weeks at a time and refuses to say why. We've only been back since Wednesday and she's only been there two days!!! I know I'm a stay at home mom but when I worked I didn't get days off like that. I got the teachers phone number from someone I know that is her second cousion and she got mad when I called and the teacher told me not to call! What the hell?! You're a teacher, you're supposed to answer school and he questions. I guess she doesn't care about my kid. The priniipal refuses to tell me why the teacher is out so much. As a parent, I deserve to know. How can I make them tell me?

You sound a little high strung. Perhaps she is having medical issues. If you don't like it have your kid switch classrooms.

I don't think you have a right to know what a teacher is doing in their personal life.  Is your child learning less because she's been gone?

You didn't say if the phone number was her house number.  I'd be pissed off too if you called my house just to be nosy. If you want to discuss your child then you shouldn't be calling a teachers home.

Quoting i_lovedyoufirst:

None of your business. Your kid is still getting an education. Quit bitching.

 my she has personal reason which she doesnt want to share. you cant make her tell you anything she doesnt want to. maybe it is a medical reason that at the moment she is reluctant to talk about. maybe she is having marital issues that she is going back to court for. honestly though, it is none of your business.

You can't. There are laws that protect employees', including teachers', privacy. She could have a chronic medical condition, or have a family member with one. There are federal laws which force employers to accommodate these situations.

She probably has a health issue, or a member of her family does.  It is not any of your business.  The school or the teacher does not have to tell you shit.

You can't. It's none of your fucking business. And I'd be PISSED if you called me at home.

Maybe she's having health problems. Get over yourself.
