Today my son gets in the car & says Will you homeschool me? So I asked what happened today and he goes on to tell me that in math today, the teacher asked him to rewrite some problems from a workbook and he became very upset (he didn't fully understand the why of what she had asked him to do) so she sent him to the hallway. After class, she took him into the teachers lounge with the guidance teacher and they proceeded to try to explain it to him again. This sent him into a meltdown (sure he was feeling trapped & cornered). He was yelling at the teacher and they called for the assistant principle who took him to the office and now he has 3 days of ISS during 2 of his classes.
When I called his special ed. teacher, she told me her side of the incident and when I tried to explain to her how he was feeling & that what they experienced with him was a melt down, she started back stepping and saying that I was wrong and kept interrupting me. Unfortunately I lost my cool and ended up hanging up on her :(
So totally frustrated! I know he shouldn't have yelled at the teacher and I understand their frustration.... Thankfully he has an appt tomorrow with his therapist and then his case worker is coming to the house.
