A teacher a few years ago had me very stressed and in tears indicating ds had issues and raising concerns because he wasn't up to speed with maths and reading when in actual fact the level she was teaching wasn't in the curriculum for pre primary. I had ds assessed with the OT and he was fine, he just hadn't developed to his full potential yet and with the other bs she was indicating I switched off, decided I wasn't going to worry anymore and rode the year out. By the middle of year 1 the following year he was above average with everything and has remained that way. Then last year ds2 had a teacher for kindy who wasn't an early learning teacher. She was an unhappy person generally and definately not suited to being a teacher of that year and going into that kindy class was like walking into a morgue. She lacked experience, communication skills and enthusiasm and I didn't feel ds was where he should have been by the end of last year, many parents felt the same with their children. Couldn't wait for the year to be over. This year his teacher is happy and enthusiastic and it shows in ds2 and the classroom, such a huge difference and he has come so far.
