My third graders teacher has been gone constantly this school year. She's in her mid fifties otherwise I'd think she was pregnant or parting or on drugs. She will be gone sometimes a couple weeks at a time and refuses to say why. We've only been back since Wednesday and she's only been there two days!!! I know I'm a stay at home mom but when I worked I didn't get days off like that. I got the teachers phone number from someone I know that is her second cousion and she got mad when I called and the teacher told me not to call! What the hell?! You're a teacher, you're supposed to answer school and he questions. I guess she doesn't care about my kid. The priniipal refuses to tell me why the teacher is out so much. As a parent, I deserve to know. How can I make them tell me?
I will. Thanks that'd be a great idea. She needs to be fired for being irresponsible
I'd go to the school board. And for those saying her kid is still getting an education, it's not a good one. As a former teacher I HATED calling out sick because the subs were pretty much useless. If she is gone that much it is definitely affecting the children's learning. In some states, all you need is a HS diploma to sub. Having a different sub every few days is NOT the same as being taught by a qualified teacher.
Why do you feel you personally need to know someone elses business? It is their personal life away from yoir child. Yes she is the teacher and she probably has a really good reason but it is none of your business. Like others have said it could be a medical reason or something happened in her family. You have no right finding her phone number and calling her home. If you are that concerned about your childs teacher not being there then see about having your child moved to a different classroom where the teacher is there more often.
No, you don't deserve to know. I had a teacher that went through chemo and radiation and was out of the classroom for months when I was in Middle School. The only reason I found this out was she passed away the following year. Maybe people don't want to broadcast that they are sick.
