As I read this article about a teacher resigning over cruel comments she’d made about an LD student she had, I began to question how some of my past teachers viewed me. Don’t get me wrong, most were awesome, but there were a select few who helped make my school experience terrible.
Was I just a stupid kid who wanted attention in their eyes?
I don’t know, and at this point, that doesn’t really matter. What’s really coming through in those posts are mutual frustration on both the kid’s and the teacher’s parts, and maybe an indication that this woman needs to find a new profession.
Teaching is not easy, especially when the teachers are under additional pressure to conform to red-tape from above, but there’s never any reason to badmouth students. It makes me wonder how she treated other LD kids in her class.
