    Default Students massaging teacher? ??

    Is it normal for students to massage teachers? Head, shoulders back massage from what I understand. 7 and 8 year olds, female teacher.
    I've never heard of it and I'm a bit 😨😨. ..especially since as a whole the teacher is horrible and I'm sure many of the kids would be keen to do it just because it would make her happy (for a change ).
    The students are not massed at all.

    I remember this being a big thing when I was at school! Girls would fight over who got to massage the teacher.
    I haven't seen it happen at DDs school.... if it did I doubt DD would do it (she won't give me a massage if I ask ), and if the teacher made her I'd be saying something. It's weird to me.

    I am a teacher, I have seen this happen. The kids would each get a 'turn' to massage the teacher while she read them a story. I find it very unprofessional and inappropriate. I wouldn't be happy as a parent either.

    I'm a teacher and I've seen kids do this, they actually love it. Sounds a bit weird I know, but it's akin to holding the teacher's hand. Little girls usually, they might do it while waiting for the class to sit down on the floor, not a big deal. Don't let it bother you.

    Might I add, I don't let the kids do it to me! But harmless.

    I think the fact that she is so awful to them most other times is what I have the issue with LOL.

    Strangely enough, the time I'd seen it was a teacher who was a total cow too. The poor kidlets are probably all trying to get on her good side!

    Yep, when I think back to when I was at school... it was the two teachers who I thought were so horrible
