I also notice she has deleted some posts, in particular the post where she described what she has witnessed. I will never understand why people delete these things. I mean, if you write something like this, and you are hell bent on doing something about it because you've been wronged......why would you delete the evidence?
stomping on teachers lol to funny, would Peel my fingers from the key board funny, don't quit your day job, comedian, but the key board never.Your wright, not all teachers are this way, I am not stomping on teachers.I think that there are lots of child in one class and not enough teachers as far as I am concerned. Everyone is different in his or her own way. I agree 110% that every child needs discipline,of course. I have gone to the board, etc. I am not going to sit here and post everything step by step of what i have and have not done, as far as the steps i took to help.If I felt that one was being Harmed, bullied, abused and so on I am on it or has gone to someone wright away. . I wanted to only get a point across to others, open eyes and mouth and help. This is who i am and this is for conversation and and a circle for moms to chat not compare or put down ,if it were to be anything other than this, I truly wouldn't waste my or any others time. I like to get to the point and kid no one. I f anyone is not happy with what i say i guess this place is mot for moms like me! I do not like to be question as if i was lying lol. I am looking out for my children and moms but as well as myself. I am not too scared to get involved nor complain about any situation. That is the reason me being involved in our school even more. I have not a thing against any teacher lol, sweetie it obvious, me and my experience with certain teachers in public schools. I have had such wonderful teacher as a child myself, but things have changed a lot sense then, people need not to be so defensive lol and remember it would make sense for one to do something about it. I most certainty have, but some things I do not have control over. PS iF i MIGHT ADD THIS i happen to be new here if one can't tell. If I have one or ten different post whats it matter? I can, and I have and see nothing wrong with it. I am in-titled to write as many posts as I choose, and about what ever, again no one has to like it. how would you like me to pursue?

All the others have said is that you are tarnishing all teachers with the same brush and it's NOT true.
If you feel so strongly against what your school is like then homeschool!!!!
I have a lot of friends that are teachers and have also volunteered at my children's school and have NEVER witnessed what you have been going on about.
If what you have been ranting about is true then take it further, go to the district office and get something done. DON'T sit at your computer ranting to a Mother's forum who can't do anything, go to someone who CAN do something.
Also don't put down the others for stating that you have numerous posts regarding the same thing. You are NOT a perfect Mother, no one is!

No, Denise, I am a mother (but by all means insult working women, that will get you everywhere), and have volunteered at my children's schools countless times. The difference between you and me is that if I had witnessed this behaviour I would have done something about it. Like filed a formal complaint. In fact I have had to do so once, to a fellow teacher, and it isn't fun, but I won't condone this behaviour and made sure it was fully investigated and appropriate action taken. Perhaps YOU should take a leaf out of MY book.
If the teachers in YOUR school are this way, then do something about it, but don't downtread all teachers because your kid goes to a school that condones this crap. 99% of teachers are great. 1% are crap and shouldn't give a bad name to all teachers by having people like you mouthing off about schools and teachers.
Clearly you have issues with your school, and nothing satisfies you, so stop bitching about it and do something, even if it is homeschooling your child. You are a full time mother, what's stopping you?
You must not be a mother,because if you were you'd most likely feel the same way.But again some may not mind and care for there child the way i do mine.There fore ,with that being said. if you feel that i said something that is amused you, well sweet heart maybe you should not be here reading my posts and find something else to read like a comic book! I really take such things like this seriously unlike others, i see. Again this is me and as far as you go, i really do not care what or how you or anyone feels about what i have to say,its opinion like ( fill in the blank) everyone has one.Don't like it leave it alone!!!! I am not here to entertain you, My intentions here are to help any full-time mother here of course that is
a woman's job that spends all her time looking after her children, and give my advice and my opinion and concerns and again not entertain another, such as yourself, Sorry!! Unless you have experience it and lived it you will never know about it! How i feel or another especially when it comes to a mothers child!!!

I agree that all teachers are not this way. I have had some really great teachers, especially when I was young, my favorite teacher was in kingergarden, and she was the sweetest teacher, and had the patience of an angel. In my schools they were not agressive like that, in every school I attended. I did have a teacher in 9th grade or so and he was yelling at the class because they werent listening and being disruptive (they needed discipline) but i happened to go to the bathroom and while walking in the door, he slammed the door on my body, He didnt know I was there, he did not do it intentionally. But he was at least taking his anger out on the door not the students.
But my HUGE question is if you are volunteering at the school and had witness to physical abuse from the teachers to students, why didnt anyone do anything about it? Take a video while its happening if you can. If that happened while I was sitting there. I would not have sat there quietly, I would have immediately got up and stopped the teacher, idc what they would have thought, they can not treat children in such a manner. Even if I didnt have a phone to record anything, I would have called the police or something. People are too scared to get involved but complain about the situation later saying how bad it is. But they are just as bad involved as anyone else letting it happen. people need to speak up and stop this from happening. And my child would not be attending that school anymore thats for sure.
I pray for these families being effected by situations like this, that they can find safety and comfort in going to school, and if any situation were to arise that it can be stopped before a child is injured. God Bless yall

It's actually quite insulting when someone like this writes post after post after post stomping on teachers in general. Teachers work hard for your children. You have no idea how hard. If you don't like your school, fine, do something about it. But don't bring down every teacher because you had a bad experience (and I am sorry you have clearly had a bad experience, that isn't right either).

I agree with Jodi,you are really putting all teachers down. NOT all teachers are as bad as you are making them look like. I respect teachers for the job they are doing,it must be a hard job. You get very good schools.I dont know where you are from but it sounds like you have a big issue with the school.If you arent happy let your son change the school.Or do home schooling.

And just for the record, please stop making it sound like all teachers and schools are like this. Parents like you make it difficult for the teachers who do the right thing every single day (like the 99% of them do). Posting thread after thread on a discussion board is an indication that you are trying to bring down a profession because of a few bad eggs.

What you have witnessed is not the norm, at least not where I am from. Please be truthful and admit that you are not seeing this stuff every day. If this is the sort of thing happening in your school every day, then you need to make a formal complaint, because in my experience as a teacher, none of these things are acceptable, but none of these things occur.
