Done With People

February 4, 2016 9:59am CST
Allow me a little rant here. Without going into details, I work with a kiddo and go to school with him. I am employed by the parents, not the school. This has been a perfectly fine arrangement with the schoool since he was in Kindergarten (now he's in 3rd grade). Suddenly, for some reason his teacher doesn't want me to come to school with him anymore. It's an awkward situation because over the past 3 years we've kind of become friends, but now she's waging this campaign to get me to not come with him next year. Well,she better be careful because I have completely done her job for her for 3 years and allowed her to take credit for it with the school system. BUT if she pushes for this, I have evidence to back this up so I WILL make sure to expose her to the principal... my kiddo needs me, his parents are not happy. I don' think this post even makes sense but I had to vent and can't d it on facebook as we are 'friends' there

Does the kid have an IEP in place? If not, the parents need to get one in place ASAP. The district has to make reasonable accommodations for students who need them, and they should be working with the parents to make sure it's taken care of. Obviously you don't have to answer--not my business, really, but something to pass onto the parents if they're not aware. If the school refuses to accommodate him, they may be required to provide transportation to another school that can meet his needs. Might I suggest putting the teacher on your restricted list on Facebook? She won't be able to see any non-public posts you make then.

Yeah he's on an IEP, that I wrote. That the teacher took credit for writing. Our next meeting will be in April so this will all resolved by then... one way or the other. I have blocked her from seeing some posts- but I'm friends with most of the teachers at the school so it's just a pain int the rear.

@MakingCents That's good, because he should be covered under the special education department if that's the case. Lots more options to get him the help he needs that way than if he's considered mainstream.

@yukimori well so as not to complicate things, I used the word teacher. The lady I have an issue with is actually his IS...

Sounds like something the parents and the school have to come to an agreement on, not the teacher.

I think its the school asking the teacher why I'm still there (as in why can't you do your job?) but that's not really what the problem is. We need to have a meeting obviously.

Oh, but your post does make a lot of sense to me. It has saved the school from having to provide in school support for little G. It has given the parents peace of mind knowing you are there, and yet for some reason the teacher, whom I am assuming is a special needs teacher has decided it is in the child's best interest to be weaned from you. Yet she has not approached you directly. Good luck.

That's my biggest issue. Why not talk about this to me directly... What exactly is her motive. Ugh.

Sounds like you do need to rant... I hope you feel better now and the situation gets resolved.
