My dd is in the fifth grade at a performing arts school . She has to leave class a few times a week for speech therapy and she has to leave her thing in class while she's gone. In the last week when she returns to class the teacher won't tell her what the assignments are she missed. This week while she was in speech twice her belongings have gone missing, first it was a lunch kit and yesterday it was her planner. Dd tell the teacher today that her planner is not at her desk and she tells her it not my problem. Ok I get that but if someone is stealing another students property while you are in the class wouldn't you be concerned if you where the teacher? I have replaced her items but I'm really concerned because we just bought her a violin that will have to be left in the class while she in speech. I'm not replacing a violin because of a thief sitting in class with the teacher . How do you even label a violin other than the case.? We had a problem last year with her teacher not allowing her to go to speech because she felt like dd didn't need it. It's a part of her iep I think she does need it .lol I don't want to be that parent but I feel I must talk to the teacher before things escalate . How should I go about speaking with the teacher without coming off as "that parent". Last year my dd had a horrible school experience but she managed to make honor roll but I will not allow her to have another bad teacher.
