This is why I don't need a facebook or a blog cause I just tell you all my whole life here lol!
This week I was down at Children's hospital with Jazz. She used to have heart problems when she was little and was put on a monitor followed by minor surgery where they went in but only through the groin. Well the pain started coming back so long story short she will be on a heart monitor for the next 30 days so we can try to record what is going on. I took pics of her at her appointment cause years ago when she was going through this I wanted no pictures. Till this day I regret it cause it was a big part of her life that is lost. I am going to do a page with her and her monitor called I heart you. (Unless anyone has a better title for me) So back to my story... today is the first day she went to school with it on. She thinks it is cool cause it looks like an i pod. Well of course I went over everything with her teacher and the school nurse. She is to do all her normal classes as she normally would. gym recess ect... so she is in gym and the gym teacher asks what it is and she tells him. He says well I should have been the first person your mom told. Then in front of two classes he said What a GREAT mom you have! WHAT!?!? I give Jasmin's girlfriends a ride home everyday and they all told me he said it making it like I was this bad mom for not telling him. I called the school and left a message. I know a lot of mom's have had problems with this gym teacher. He is very high strung. I guess I just feel like here I am with one child with epilepsy and another with heart problems and he is trying to judge my parenting. UGH just bugs me. He has also used to say to Jazz "Your parents let you miss out on gym to model? " She has gym before lunch so if she has a job I like it to be during gym or art or lunch vs math or something more important. I think he should talk to me about it not Jazz. Jazz told me that a kid in her gym class slid down the ropes rather than climb down and he yelled "I hope you burned your hands!" This guy sounds like a wacko to me. I hope the school says something to him. Okay that's all, just had to vent
this sounds like my son's old kindergarten teacher. All the kids say she yells at them all the time. And she also is very harsh with the kids. I know of several parents that have had issues with her. I am thinking about making sure that Gwendolyn does not have her for kindergarten next year. Just make sure to be vocal with the principle.

Wow Tia! First off, I am sorry to hear she is having problems and I hope they can figure it out and help her quickly. Bless her heart. Second...OMG!!! I'd be so mad. Why can't people keep their mouths shut and why do they have to put kids in the middle of ANYTHING adult??? Oh I know why....they are kids themselves. Hugs girl!!!

oh wow..I'd be talking with the principal of the school. Those comments should never be made to the kids. On top of you having to deal with what you do. I am sorry!!

As a teacher, I want to apologize for my fellow teacher. No one should judge your parenting decisions like that. I have found myself questioning my students' parents' decidsions before, but I would never say anything out loud and especially not in front of students. That's just unprofessional. Besides that, I always try to give the benifit of doubt in favor of the parent because I don't ever know the whole story. That just makes my blood boil the more I think about it. What grade is Jazz in? Is PE required for her? Could she get medical waiver? Seriously, I would want to get her away from this guy. Then again, I don't know the whole story...
wow, I'm a teacher too and have come across some interesting parenting decisions but would never DREAM of saying something to the child that is incredibly rude! I hope she's okay and the teacher learns to pull his head in. Sounds to me like you discussed it with all the right people and if they didn't pass the message on to him it's not your fault, what a jerk.
