I received a call from a friend tonight, our girls are in the same multiage program. She said one of the teachers was very upset and hurt today because another parent had approached her to say that a group of parents had been sitting around complaining about the multiage teachers (she is a childhood friend of the teacher). She asked me if I knew anything since I was at the party. First off, I didn't hear any complaints about these teachers and I was with the adult group. Second, why would someone go back and report this even if it did happen? Really! What would be the purpose except to get a reaction out of this hard working and dedicated teacher? It's hurtful and mean-spirited! These professionals work hard everyday to give our kids the best education possible under shrinking budgets and testing stress. They develop strong and caring relationships with the children. They come in early and go home late. They always make time to meet with parents when asked. While I'm sure they aren't perfect (no one is), all four of these teachers are well educated, dedicated and caring individuals. The people of my community are fortunate to have them.
