A parent of mine had a stranger approach them and said they needed to get their child out of my class ( a mod-severe placement) because “I allowed my staff to be physically and verbally  abusive“. I have been at this school for my entire career 10+ years. Was awarded teacher of the year a few years back and have known this parent for 3 yrs and had her child prior to this school year and have had a decent year prior to this slander. My admin did a thorough investigation of  interviewing 18 staff members including aides and service providers. NOT ONE NEGATIVE COMMENT WAS MADE ABOUT MY CLASS. they were all sterling reviews because i really do love my students and love working with them and run a great program. however my admin approved a class change even though it meant moving the child from his grade level to a lower class,my aides are not allowed to work or interact with him, even though they have done nothing wrong, and the parent is now filing a lawsuit. Oh, and parent has requested home hospital and I bet you my retirement they’ll grant it. So yeah, admin who are weak and scared are killing us. Toughen up and support your staff!

    Follow up to teaching like Mary Poppins.... I stayed calm as i watched one of my 5th graders fling a book around and smack a student in the face. I sent him out, spoke calmly as he denied it all. Texted my principal and got this response ....

    My principal asked to meet with me this morning (happy fu*^ing Monday!). He proceeded to lecture me about my tone with my students. He basically said if my students act up, it’s my fault because I haven’t set the expectations (It’s 5th Grade, i have set the expectations and they have been set since kindergarten!) If they are being disrespectful, it is my fault because I am disrespectful. He said I should teach more like Mary Poppins! And just sing and laugh it off! He then told me he just watched Mary Poppins Returns and noticed how she sang and was magical yet very stern with the kids and they listened! Ummm....hello! Someone should tell him it’s a movie! It’s. Not. Real. But here is me teaching like Mary....
