It's Scary

Clip to ScrapBook #8

I teach third grade and have one mom glued right next to the girl. "The girl" turns things in at 11pm some nights. When I kindly asked the mom to let this other girl and her daughter alone in a breakout room to work together, the mom started making excuses about her daughter not being able to .... to which I had to cut her off and explain, I didn't mind her there at other times, but I can't have her sitting in with her daughter and another child. When I popped back in shortly after, the other girl was quietly working and the mother's daughter had her camera off so I know Mom was right there doing something. So I cancelled all the partner work so furious because most of these kids are desperately needing that social outlet, and here this mom is ruining an opportunity. I also had them do a Flipgrid and the mom sat off camera prompting this girl, third grade, and this girl starts talking baby talk. I showed last year's teacher and asked her what she thought and she was shocked at how this girl sounded.

I broached the subject of whether our district had parents sign any type of waiver that they cannot talk about what possibly goes on during "School". This type of Mom is one of those who runs her mouth on social media.

But ... this is only a drop in the bucket of what the district is doing to those of us teaching remotely. I've been disillusioned with teaching for the last four years and I think this could be the final year. It's really sad, I used to love teaching and was hoping I could find that spark again. It's dead......
