Its always hard to send your kids to school my dd starts kindergarten this year and its killing me....  The teacher needs to check her attitude though kids have a hard time adjusting to knew things especially if they don't go to day care or a sitter on a regular basis.  Maybe you should set up a meeting with the teacher to maybe maker your childs transition a little smoother.  It may also help to maybe volunteer at her school a day a week and then she will feel more comfortable.  You are not a bad mom by sending her to school just know that its whats best for her and give her lots of hugs and kisses when she gets home!

I'd be looking for another school if the teacher told me my child needed to shut up. If she's pre k, she's young and probably not used to being away from you, and surely she's not the only child this teacher has ever had who gets separation anxiety. 

Mama, sending her to school and letting her have that time away is good for her and for you. Does she do a half day or full? How many days a week? How old is she?

Its hard to say if you are both working there isn't a whole lot you can do about her schedule.  Although making sure that you spend extra family time together on the weekends may help ease her anxiety.  And she is old enough to tell you a little bit of why she is so upset.  Try talking to her and find out what is upsetting her and try to find some ways to help her.  You are doing what all parents do don't feel bad.  It's better now in pre k than when she starts kindergarten or 1st grade.  Keep doing what you are doing and it will work out just give her some time to adjust.
