My youngest daughter is in Grade 2..there are three Grade 2 classes in our school.
She had an excellent year last year, didn't cry, was very well behaved, did very well with her school work and she loved her teacher and her teacher had alot of time for her and excellent feedback to me.
This year is another story and I don't know if to try to keep going with the teacher she has or to have her swapped to another class.
My daughter has been sent to the "buddy room" for talking in class. I saw her teacher who said that my daughter talks all the time to the kids she sits next too and is extremely disruptive.
I don't believe this to be true. I also don't think she should have been sent to the buddy room for this and now this will be on her report card.
I have been to see the teacher twice, the teacher will not help with a strategy to help my daughter..I asked if my girl is indeed talking too much then can she be moved to a desk by herself so she can concentrate. The teachers answer was to wave her arm around and say "umm but these desks all fit together".....
No help or remedy at all. My daughter is crying not wanting to go to school, her homework isn't getting marked (the teacher said" oh I'll mark it this week" and this teacher is very shy and quiet and even when I speak to her I have to lean in very close to hear her..
I'm going to see the principal tommorrow but I don't know if I should have my girl moved or just to perservere with what we have...your thoughts?
