Anger Management Versus Desk Management

| Learning | October 9, 2013

(I am six years old, and my mom comes to pick me up early from school.)

Office On Intercom: “Ms. [Teacher’s Name], can you send [My Name] to the office? Her mother is here to pick her up.”

Teacher: “Okay.” *to me* “Go ahead.”

Me: “Okay.”

(I start gathering materials for homework, and getting everything organized as I am an extremely organized person. I am not making a lot of noise or disrupting the class in any way.)

Teacher: “Hurry up!”

Me: “Okay, I’m just putting everything in the right place.”

Teacher: *yelling* “That doesn’t matter! Just get your things together and get out of my class!”

Me: “Okay, okay, I’m almost finished.”

(The teacher runs over to me, grabs my arm, and screams at me.)

Teacher: “You disrespectful little—”

(The teacher raises her hand to hit me, but at that moment, my mom steps into the room. She decided to walk to my classroom since it was on our way out of the school anyway. She has seen the entire exchange.)


Teacher: “Um… uh… uh…”

Mom: “We will take this to the principal! Come on, sweetheart. Let’s go!”

(When we talk to the principal, the teacher loses her job for the incident, and many others like it in the past.)
