There is a teacher at my boys public school who has a really bad reputation. We live in a small town, everyone knows everyone. Since my guys have been in kindergarten, all I keep hearing about is this teacher. He usually teaches the grade 6,7 or 8's. It is from students and parents alike that I hear how this man will flirt and favor the young pretty popular girls. The flirting part I have seen with my own eyes and it turns my stomach and sets off all kinds of alarm bells. Most parents will says "Well, thank goodness I don't have a girl or at least he won't bother my daughter because she is not part of the popular group. All I keep thinking is "REALLY", because to me if he can so freely flirt with 11,12, and 13 year old girls, something seems a bit off kilter there. I not only don't feel comfortable with him teaching my boys, but really don't feel good about knowing he is walking them same halls as them. He also has had run ins with parents of at least 3 boys that I know of for calling the boys stupid and screaming all the time. Most parents shrug this behavior off or complain to each other but don't do anything about it. My oldest will be in grade 7 in the fall. He could have him for a teacher. What would you do......?........?

The best that I can say is speak with the administration about your concerns. Do not address it with gossip, but voice your concerns with the favoritism. Request early on that you child does not have this teacher. And if he does, petition against it. Speak up now, cause if your son does get this teacher, it will be more difficult to address it after and have his class changed. Good luck.

Thank you for the advice. When you say speak to the administration, do you mean the principle? Or do you mean even higher up? Thanks
