Got this today from Odin's history teacher. "Good afternoon, "My name is [teacher] and I am [Odin]’s teacher for [academic course]. I had to speak with [Odin] this afternoon about his sleeping in my class. I have spoken to him before about it, and even sent him to his counselor if he felt he did not want to be here in my class. He seems to be a good student, polite, quiet, respectful, but just decides to clear his desk off and put his head down to sleep whenever he feels like it.. This is a college-level course and it is rigorous. On page 2 of my syllabus, you’ll find that I allow students who fail a test to re-take the test (if they receive a D or F on the first attempt). This is a privilege. Because of his continual sleeping issue, I have taken away Aidan’s test re-take privilege. If I see improvement, I may reinstate the privilege, but not this marking period. He is doing fine in the class right now with a C average, but the first marking period is probably the easiest. The course does get a bit more rigorous as we progress through the first Term. "Thank you for your time and support, and please let me know if I can answer any questions you may have." Odin lives with his father (my X) during the week and was also with his dad this past weekend, so I don't know what his sleep schedule has been. The neuropsychologist who tested him last month recommended a sleep study, but we haven't been able to get it yet. I wrote back to the teacher with thanks for reaching out and assurances that X and I are trying to get a handle on Odin's problems and appreciate his patience in the meantime. But inside I'm furious that he's suggesting my kid doesn't want to be in the class and that a C average is "doing fine." Maybe he should have asked some questions of me or the guidance counselor before assuming Odin is simply lazy and dim? ...Or maybe I'm just rationalizing my son's outrageous behavior. I don't know, and I'm scared. Thanks for tolerating my vent.
