My son who has been making A's and B's all year long is being picked on, and on top of that the organized school decided to change his teacher along with some other 1st graders when they did all of their assessments to help each child get more specialized help with certain subjects about 3 months into school. OF I had to deal with upset parents and other kids crying in the halls because they did not want to be switched out of their current classroom. The teacher he went too like to bad mouth and talk to much about other parents business to other parents, I have had to complain about this to the principal as well. It started off with the teacher talking so negative about my son and then I had to cut her off about this, she would complain about stupid mess like for example their playing a game (the kids that is together) and because a child on his team was doing better than he was my son would blurt out you are cheating over and over to the other child, and of course the teacher acted like she had never heard a child say something like this before? When I was growing up being kids we said all kinds of things and I remember myself telling my friends that they were cheating and so on not in a mean way because I was a kid and when a kid wasn't winning that is what we would say to eachother especially when some was getting ahead in the game. But my main concern is that I have felt like she singled my son out because he was new to the class and I have witnessed how super sweet she is to other children and then will scold my son like he is the badest child on earth or he gets under her skin! I will be so happy when he finishes the class because I am thinking greatly about homeschooling next year. Please give me your thoughts should I put in a complaint to the board of education because one thing I don't think I will ever forgive her for is sharing other parents confidential information with me and other parents and then going back and badmouthing parents and to me that makes me feel like she is mistreating my child??? Any suggestions or insight feel free to respond.

Yes Julie I am sorry I was all over the place didn't really know how to pin point the issue or the cause of the picking and so on, and then I couldn't help but to complain about the teacher! Sorry for that, I was trying to figure out how to delete this conversation so sorry for still having it up here. Thanks Mrs. Briggs

First thought, you are kind of over the place. the post title states "smart student, jealous classmates" but your complaint seems like a socialization problem with his peers and a personality conflict between your son and his teacher.
I have had several teachers, coaches etc. treat my son differently than others because of his "dramatics" but that's who he is!
I let the teachers know I was we'll aware they did not care for my son, but reminded them it was their job to treat him like everyone else
