Doesn't do her job. She has decided that my son is "unteachable" after he has only been there for one week and one day. today will be two days. UNTEACHABLE?!?!?! Really? Look I know it's your last year of working, but instead of not doing your job for the year, how about you figure out how to teach my kid, not tell me that you don't want to do it. Screw that. I can't wait until my conference with her. Things will be said. I won't be nice, and my husband is even more outraged.
Even if she didn't mean it as rudely as she put it, the point is.. there is a million more ways she could have approched the subject.

There is no such thing as an unteachable child. Everyone has the ablility. The problem isn't with my son, it's with someone who doesn't want to help. I know he is a handful, but he isn't unteachable. For if he was, I wouldn't have been able to teach him as much as I have. I don't have a teaching degree, so I know that it is a matter of will.

Yeah, it seems like the appropriate "good parent" thing to do is get on an anonymous website and spew your hatred. Maybe you should speak to the school instead of trash talking on a site where she can't defend herself.

thank you very much, I did. I've talked to all of them, but that doesn't mean it's right. Welcome to the internet buddy.:D
I do take care of things in the correct mannor, but everyone needs to bitch sometimes. Even if it's a public site.

I bet that kid is a handful. Teach him yourself if he's such a great learner. That one kid is gonna bring the rest of that class down. Many kids will be forced to wait for yours to catch up. Its not fair to the Kids that are suffering.

you obviously don't know my kid. i pay taxes for the schools just like the rest of the state. My kid deserves the skills just as much as anyone else.

Everyone pays taxes for the schools. I don't have kids so why should I have to pay?

I understand the legalities of the tax system. However, I get zero benefit from paying them and this woman expects a teacher to undo years of bad raising. You should have to pass a test to have kids. I'm probably paying to feed the little heathen too

how do you know it's the parenting? do you know this woman? I see her point in the teacher saying this. If you don't have children then what right do you have to say that this woman is a bad parent? or worse yet to say that you're paying for her son to eat. it isn't fair for a teacher to say "unteachable." my sister is special needs and still graduated highschool. no one is unteachable

I know someone who "graduated" too....and they barely can sign their name. That diploma doesn't mean a thing in the real world.

the reality of it is. no teacher, should ever say those words to a child or parent. it's unprofessional and quite rude. so, you as a man who doesn't have children, go right ahead and judge something you will never understand until you have children.

I immage "unteachable" is due to a lack of discipline. She probably used "unteachable" in a specific context like "your child is unteachable when he stands on his desk and screams" or whatever your kid was doing. She didn't speak to you just to be mean, she was probably hoping that you would do something to enforce some discipline, so he'd be better behaved. The teacher's disciplinary reach is only as long as the parents will support. If mom and dad just laugh and say "fuck that bitch teacher" there's no way the kid is going to show any restraint in the classroom, and of course the child won't learn anything. There's really nothing teachers can do to truely enforce discipline if you really think about it. Talking to parents is the last resort. If the parents don't care, there's nothing more the teacher can do except remove the child from the room.

Mrs. Dean is a great teacher who always thinks of the children. She was my child's kindergarten teacher and she is one of the kindest teachers in the school. One angry mom needs to work with Mrs. Dean and figure out how to get this child under control because the behavior will only get worse if the parent and teacher don'[t work together.

There is no such thing as an "inteachable" child, perhaps the child needs to be evaluated for special education, I don't know the whole situation, so can't make that judgement by what has been posted. Requiring special education is NOT a crime, even though people act like it is. Perhaps this child didn't have the opportunity to go to preschool like a lot of kids. Perhaps there is some other reason why this teacher says he is "unteachable", but being a "handful" isn't one of them, Perhaps he's ADHD and requires medication to control his racing thoughts and inability to focus. There are a LOT of reasons why this child may be a handful, but that still does not give the teacher the right to say he is "unteachable", and she DEFINITELY did NOT have the right to say it to a parent. I just hope to God that she didn't say it in front of the child.

One Angry Mother, I wish I knew who you were - I might be able to give you some PRIVATE guidance instead of through this website. The first thing I would do is go to the Unit office and tell the head of the unit exactly what was said and that you want a different teacher - one that is capable and willing to work with your child. If that doesn't work, find out who every single person is on the school board and write each and every one of them a letter. Find out when the next school board meeting is, and go. Ask to be allowed to speak, then sit and write out exactly what you want to say - without personally attacking the teacher - just state the facts and exactly what she said to you and whether or not it was in front of your child.

PLEASE, take care of this NOW, before it is too late and he ends up like another poster mentioned - graduated from high school and barelt able to write his name. Once he gets the "reputation" of being "unteachable:, all the rest of his teachers are going to treat him the same way, and they will pass him just to get him out of their hair and to make themselves look great and wonderful for "dealing with an unteachable child"

I have done all things mentioned. And I am seeking outside help. Seems Unit 9 schools are more concerned with saving their own ass than helping a child who doesn't know what's really going on.
I don't want him left in the dust and feel as though something is wrong with him. He's a very smart child, he just can't focus. As for the rest of these absurd comments, it's nice to see that you take so much pride in aiming for the worse in children. Last time I checked, I've never been in prison, or jail. Nor has my husband. So before you say things, think about exactly what your saying and who you're possibly saying them to.
