Rude remarks made by teacher

Last night my son was telling me that sometimes his teacher is mean to a particular native girl in his class.

One incident in particular makes me want to report her to the principal. The girl had dropped some wrappers on the floor under her desk and the teacher said for all her classmates to hear “Are you a pig?!”

On another occasion the little girl needed help so she kept calling out “Teacher, Teacher… I need your help” To which the teacher turned her back, shook her head and muttered “I swear to god” as if she was annoyed.

ANOTHER GREAT POST:  To the Man/Woman Who is Always Sitting in Their Vehicle Outside the Cemetery: I See You

I know this particular teacher is new to the school and new to the teaching profession as she just graduated not long ago. Perhaps she needs to learn how to deal with children under 10 or learn some patience.

Is it wrong to bring this to the principals attention as its not my child being mistreated??

  1. Get proof then talk to who ever. Kids lie always have valid proof. Video, photos, witnesses(adult)

    • Always always always believe your child when they come to you with situations of abuse with or without proof. If it turns out to be a lie, then deal with that then. If they feel like they can’t come to you if they can’t prove something, that can have very serious consequences down the road when something happens to them and they don’t tell you. But guess what. Even if it is a lie, you’ve proven to your child that you believe them and will do what you need to do until it’s proven otherwise.

      Kids lie for a pay off. I highly doubt this is the case in the OPs example. There is no pay off.

      [0]
    • I don’t think a kid would lie about this. Kids lie when there is something to gain, like not getting into trouble or to get something they want. The son had nothing to gain by disclosing this to his mother.

      [0]
    • In my opinion(which is my opinion) not anyone else’s you could be getting an innocent person in trouble for nothing. Personally yes believe your children to an EXTENT

      [0]
    • Oh trust me when I was in younger grades other children would lie constantly just to get someone in trouble they didn’t like. Example other kids, teachers ect.

      [0]
    • If they didn’t do anything wrong, they won’t get in trouble. Will there likely be an investigation, sure. But once they talk to other kids and no one else has seen this behaviour they’re gonna know.

      [0]
    • Sure, but by just speaking to the teacher no one is getting into trouble. Maybe the teacher is just frustrated and it wasn’t directed at the little girl. The mom won’t know unless she talks to the teacher.

    • It also humiliates people… op is talking about going directly to the principle not the teacher

      [0]
    • And this child is being humiliated by her behaviour. So who should be risk humiliating. An adult, or a child

      [0]
    • Neither but TALK TO people see if it’s happening elsewhere most kids that age have different teachers not just 1 and talk to the teacher why humiliate her by going to someone higher up I get what you ladies are saying.

      [0]
    • The teacher isn’t going to say yes I’m being discriminatory if they were and if they aren’t so, principal it is.

      [0]
    • But speak to other people in the class, other teachers, witnesses. Kids LIE every kid does it and no not all kids lie for a gain

    I think it would be nice ( and impactful) for you to talk to the principal about this situation. Your child had noticed this problem, and kids aren’t usually so thoughtful of others. It is a problem. Good for you and your caring child!!!

  3. If this was your child would you want someone to stand up for them? This teacher may not realize that is unacceptable behaviour and if no one corrects her it will continue…She is also letting other children think this is ok. It upset your child enough for him to come to you about it…Do what you know is right.

  10. This is a tricky situation. On one hand you haven’t witnessed any incidents but if it is happening you want to protect an innocent child.
    Your son is quite empathetic to notice this and tell you, it obviously bothers him. And that is no doubt credit to your good parenting. If you don’t doubt what your son is saying, I personally would say something to the teacher. If she knows kids are watching and telling their parents about upsetting interactions between this teacher and that little girl, she may correct her behaviour on her own. She HAS to know it’s wrong! If she continues I would speak to the principal.

    [0]
    • I was the child bullied by the teacher and if you give the teacher a chance to turn this poor child into a scapegoat she will. She will document every tiny infraction, drive a wedge between the girl and her classmates and ensure the girl is a ‘problem child’ rather than her being a problem teacher. It will follow this girl through the rest of her years at the school and it won’t be until she switches districts and her file is left behind that people realize how bad it was.

      Be brave. Stand up for this girl. It’s not tricky.

      [0]
    • I get what you’re saying………but, if you haven’t witnessed any incidents you can’t be certain what the son thought he saw actually happened. I think it probably did. I agree it should be addressed. I just appreciate the gravity of the op’s predicament.
      I am sorry this happened to you. I hope this little girl the op is talking about is saved from that.

  12. The teacher needs to be reprimanded for her behaviour against an innocent child, your child came to you because he trusts that you will be the voice for the innocent child that is being ridiculed and treated cruelly by an authority figure, I had experiences with a teacher when I was in grade 2 and it was the worst feeling in the world, this innocent child needs to know that the Teacher is at fault for treating her this way and is not the child’s fault

  13. What does this have to do with race?

  14. Some white kids are annoying, some black kids are annoying, some Asian kids are annoying, some brown kids are annoying, etc. etc.

    • That’s fine. As an educator you don’t show bias or frustration.

    • Lisa Poitras Lisa Poitras says:

      And some ppl are racist to certain races. It is a reality unfortunately.

      [0]
    • Yes, Kelli, and what if as an educator they treat every unnerving kid that way without bias? I got much worse from my teachers, but seldom felt hard done by.

      [0]
    • Yes, Lisa, but nothing in the story indicates that this child was targetted because of their race.

      [0]
    • My teachers used to say in French, “You make me sick. Get out of my face.” It was because I was difficult.

      [0]
    • Lisa Poitras Lisa Poitras says:

      She said a native girl. Obviously you have never been the native girl targeted by a racist teacher. I have in jr high and it felt horrible. Ive had great teachers and that one racist teacher who can ruin a child’s school experience. And I was not a troubled kid. I obeyed and listened and never spoke up in class. And I was very quiet and did all my homework and had decent grades.

      [0]
    • Lisa, I’m sure there are cases of blatant racism between students and teachers, but, again, nothing in the story suggests there was outright racism at play. Replace “native girl” with “white girl” in the story. Does it still sound racist to you? No. Probably seems pretty useless to mention race, doesn’t it?

      [0]
    • Lisa Poitras Lisa Poitras says:

      No. Its out there and needs to be addressed to stop it. Replacing it, is denying it. Ignoring it is denying it. If we want all this to end, we must address it and let those that do it know it is not acceptable. Racism is taught not genetic. The OP posted on the information she was given by a child’s innocent eyes. Probably the most honest witness you can have. Why not address it? Why not stop it? Why go and say, “why make it a race issue?” When all you see in the news and streets are these issues? Or is she getting belittled by a teacher because she is a young female child asking for help or dropping a wrapper on the floor?

  15. The process at the school is that they will want you to address the teacher first. I am proud of your son for caring abut this girl & this teacher needs to be addressed. If the teacher does not respond well (likely but I hooe not ) immediately go to the principal & the school council meeting & have it be put into writing in the monthly council meeting & keep pushing until it is addressed this kind of crap happens all too often & if you do not try to address the teacher first they will try to not deal with this kind of stuff – speaking as a parent who has been on & attends parent council & has seen too much of this kind of stuff!

    • Luke Mila Luke Mila says:

      No you don’t have to deal with the teacher . You can speak to admin

      [0]
    • You can deal with whomever you like, in the Catholic school system the first point of contact is to be the teacher, if the issue cannot be resolved then one is to step it up & talk to superiors but I can guarantee that almost ANY principal is going to ask if this has been attempted to be dealt with the teacher in question. If you have not tried to settle it with the teacher first, they will usually send the parent out their office door explaining that this is policy & how things work. I have watched many parents struggle which is why I strongly suggest having it in the parent council minutes if the parent is not receiving the answer that they would like to see.

    • I’ve never had that experience. Both times I talked to the principal about a teacher, the principal dealt with it.

  25. In my opinion experience kids of a certain age (although I’m not going to say things haven’t changed since I was a kid though) but certainly report it, or at least to a parent who can carefully bring it up with the school. I vividly remember a teacher, who was also the vice principal in junior high, making constant blonde jokes sure, not your cut and dried racial comments, however still enough for an impressionable 12 year old to question her own intelligence despite being atop of the class grades wise. Sure certain kids laughed but I was that blonde little girl who was both smart, and an active participant in school despite being painfully shy. To be demeaned because of hair colour and stereotypes was beyond sending the wrong message. Not only did any kid who was blonde, particularly the girls, question their own intelligence, even if they were smart as everyone knows how you look has nothing to do with your intelligence. But it mad3 you doubt yourself period. To pretend it doesn’t happen or teachers don’t have their own biases, or even horribly off-base sense of humour shouldn’t be ignored just because “kids lie” as another poster said. Now I went to school before cell phones but thankfully had enough adults in my life who knew if I brought up a subject such as that I was doing it for a reason. He later as disciplined multiple times and I don’t believe he can even teach anymore (he was also horribly sexist quite and made sexual innuendo type comments to kids that age so frequently that it was more than just one person complaining. It was group over group for many years.

    You’d actually hope that newer teachers would be more sensitive to the needs and backgrounds of their students but social media will fully establish that it doesn’t matter the age of the educator. They still have biases for one reason or another but shouldn’t.

    I’m actually proud of this particular kid for telling an adult that this is what they’ve witnessed and if anything can b3 done. It shows a sensitivity and empathy that many adults could strive for. There may be consequences in the class, unfairly, but you know your child is aware of prejudice and is willing to speak up about it and both the kid and the patents should be applauded. It’s easy to be apathetic but it’s very hard to stand up and try and make a difference and care for their fellow classmates. I know many kids (and I honestly am not even a kid person) who know better than many adults. This should be at least investigated. There’s many brilliant teachers but it only takes one to ruin the experience.

    Sorry , I’m crazy tired tonight and my level of proofreading is not where it normally is, but read between the typos I’m too tired to spot. Oddly I’m a mid 30s student new to university after working in that industry and still wanting and needing more to keep up with things. Normally I’d proofread more than I did but I can barely keep my eyes open. This was just something that struck a chord with me and “innocent” comments can escalate in a hurry.

  26. I am just wondering why it was relevant to the story to mention the girl was Native? If you were explaining the same story and the child happened to be Hispanic would you state the teacher has been unkind to the “Hispanic” girl in the class? Or the “Caucasian” girl in class? This to me invites racism where it might not be…. this teacher might just be an A class douche…. and there are plenty of those around. There are also awesome teachers. Perhaps it is time for the parent of said Native girl to be abridged that her child is perhaps being mistreated and encourage her to speak directly to the teacher that she is on watch. If nothing changes… everyone and I mean EVERYONE has a boss.

    • Alison Cowan Alison Cowan says:

      Darcy Alook The question is why was the race mentioned by the poster? Were there other incidents more directly race focused that were edited out of the comment, perhaps for brevity? Did the child perhaps suggest that this girl was being treated badly because of her race? Or did the poster merely intend to mention this in passing, or thought it was relevant and then decided it wasn’t? Christine isn’t “the only one making this a race issue”, she’s ASKING if it’s a race issue.

  40. I think it’s especially important that someone other than the child’s parent speaks out when an issue like this is noted. It shows that you and your child both empathize with this girl and the unfair treatment she is receiving, whatever the motivation behind it may be.

    Additionally, she may or may not be receptive to the criticism but I’ve always been a firm believer that employees should have the right to hear concerns about their performance before it becomes a bigger issue and have the chance to change their behaviour. I think many employees are unaware of their faults or the degree to which others see them until there is so much frustration that it affects professional relationships. If everyone was just open about constructive criticism before it got bad enough to have feelings involved I think a lot of workplaces would be less toxic and critiques would be more openly received.

    Best case scenario, the little girl should receive a sincere apology and both parties learn from the experience.

  41. I had an issue with one of my daughter’s teachers a few years back. I confronted her after a meet the teacher night and I told her that sort of behaviour would not fly with a lot of heated words. Needless to say things escalated and I ended up pulling her out of the class. I went to the principle with the situation and he took the teachers side, and it wasn’t until I involved the assistant superintendent that I got resolution on the matter. It was not my intention to be malicious, but I wanted the situation documented because if she did this to one child chances are she has done it to others. I wanted a paper trail so that the next time something happens and a parent steps up, there is evidence to support her behaviour. Don’t let anyone dismiss you and keep going up the ladder until you get answers!

  47. Please say something for the child who is being treated badly. I am pretty sure teachers have an ethics and moral compass they must follow. You must be proud of your child to know the difference between right and wrong. For also having empathy and compassion. From where I come from being called a pig is verbal abuse. This teacher needs to learn ethnic diversity, Protect the children from child bullies and adult bullies. Trust me the child will be very thankful. If not you at least the parents should be advised on what is going on in the classroom

  56. I was that little girl in school and I can tell you that it would have been really nice if someone had stood up for me instead of ignoring it.

I am 40 years old and still carry trauma from ” bullying” from my Grade one teacher, in my case it sadly was because I was the ” native girl”. This teacher needs to know that it’s not ok to dim the light of a child’s innocence.

  62. I don’t think mentioning that the child is native was necessary or meaningful unless you’re positive it’s the reason for the mistreatment.

    You want to bring your concerns about a teacher’s attitude towards a child in her class to the principal based on your own child’s’ anecdotes? Give your fucking head a shake you twit!

    [0]
  71. I can not imagine how stressful it is in the classroom for the children. Children look to the teacher to lead them or guide them. When they feel or see the teacher specifically target a student the children are aware and it causes stress.I would go to the principal because you do not want anxiety or stressed out children due to this situation.

    [0]
  72. if the child is not yours that got treated this way you probably cant do anything. The parents of the native girl is the one that needs to come forward. The teacher or principal wont do anything with you. But also make sure the allégation is true. Im not saying your child lied but sometimes things get twisted. Allégations if not 100% true can ruin careers.

  73. Here is a wild idea talk to the teacher instead of running to the principal. Then follow up with the principal stating you already brought this to the teachers attention.
    Teach a child how to stand up and do the right thing in a mature fashion instead of feeding into passive aggressive behavior.

  76. This teacher’s behaviour needs to stop. She’s an authority figure in a position of power and is setting an example for her students for good or bad. If your child noticed then you can bet that others have too and some of them are going to think this is acceptable. We need to take action against racism and hate and your kid is doing the right thing. Report it to the principal and if you don’t think that person takes it seriously or if you hear of it continuing, take it to the next level and keep taking it to the next level until it changes. Zero tolerance.

    Victor Diaz – don’t make this about race.

    Dave, you’re wrong. Teachers are not permitted these types of comments and behaviour. Nor are supervisors or anyone else in a position of authority because it signals to everyone else that the individual subjected to it is worthy of scorn and ridicule by everyone. It is the TEACHERS responsibility- being in a position of power – to NEVER put a target on a students back.

  79. Yes please bring this up with the school. She should not be treated any differently than other kids. And this teacher is being a bully! This needs to stop before it gets worse

    REPORT HER! But I would tell the Principal that you are informing him as a courtesy and a letter to the Superintendent has been written. This is racism and she’s shaping the minds of young children. She should not be a teacher.

  84. Let the principal know and Also Tell the parent of the little girl. I’m sure they will deal with it.

    It would be nice to know the name of this school and said teacher. Maybe other parents can keep their eyes open too.

  86. Definitely speak up and follow up . Terrible that a person of authority treats a child ( or any one) this way. Precisely how self esteem issues start. Shame shame on this teacher:(

    Definitely not wrong.
    My son told me his math teacher called their entire class a bunch of deadbeats and regularly tells them that they will never amount to anything…. I really think they need to start broadcasting classrooms live on school zone the way they do in some daycares so parents can see and hear exactly what’s going on during certain classes like this. Some teachers may also be inclined to do and be better knowing that a students parent or someone from the school board could be watching at any and every moment!

  88. Report the teacher, she’s discriminating against the little native girl. With her attitude she’s in the wrong profession!

  89. This is not a tricky situation at all. Report her. She is setting an example to all the children in that class. I work in the school system and would never want this to happen to any child. This is racism and bullying. Tell the principal your concerns, have him talk to your son and some of the other students and the student being treated poorly. She’s probably afraid to tell her parents because she might be afraid she would end up getting it worse from the teacher. Open your mouth and say something.

    Sounds to be ‘selective’ and ‘recurring.’

    — Take the concern to the top, i.e. the Principal.

    — Schedule/request a “short meeting” with the principal and handle the issue with discretion – Insisting to the principal that you Wish to Remain Anonymous. If the principal is a good principal, he or she will handle with discretion and anonymity without your asking – but play safe, insist they handle it as such in any case.

    — You say the teacher is new? “Ms New Teacher” needs to be taught something she apparently never learned. Her demeanor is affecting her students … she’s not a good role model.

    — Keep everyone else out of it, and that means ‘everyone else – out’

    When it comes to CHILDREN, yours / someone else’s — ALL CHILDREN need to be treated fair and equal. No excuses – No exceptions ~

    Trust me… I know from the experience of a mother whose child was treated unfairly by both (some of) his peers and (some of) his teachers … up until I went on a mission to do my part in ‘helping’ to be instrumental (my contribution) in changing that. It’s a constant problem needing ongoing attention.

    Today my son is an adult – and one of the nicest people I know – wise, responsible – blossomed beautifully. We get compliments from everyone who meets / gets to know him as an individual.

    It takes (respectively) – a village, community, good parental support (an integrated system of ALL being on the same page) to raise a child (CHILDREN) to be good members of society.

    The fact that your son came to you (his most trusted adult) and shared the incidences with you, speaks volumes. Awesome!!

    This, being my input is at the end of the long list to your post – Hope you check back and have the opportunity to read it.

    I would really like to see you post again later on the subject, and would love to know that you and any other parent in agreement, have opted to made a mark by reporting a problem ~
