Anxiety Eased

Son is a little less anxious about going back to school, now that we know who is teacher will be and who's in his class.

The one kid he was dreading is in the other second grade class; there was an immediate attitude change when Son saw that!

So, he's feeling better about this, and I now have proof that requesting a particular teacher actually works. Believe me, I was ready to flex my "mommy muscles" if Son didn't get the teacher I requested!

Some people just shouldn't be teaching. Sounds like you've got several of those in your school.

My girls have had a few of those shouldn't-be-teaching-type teachers. My oldest had a 3rd grade teacher who put the fear of failure in her by constantly berating the kids when they didn't follow her very vague directions.

Glad that your son doesn't have the dreaded boy in his class and that you were able to get the teacher you wanted.
