Hi all, I had already gotten my class list in June...as you all know teachers talk about the kids they have in their class. I let one of the second grade teachers take a glimpse at my list. Right away she goes "Oh boy, Carly is a handful and I fought the parents to test her for ADHD." I just replied with "Oh" One of my main rules about the start of new school year is to IGNORE what other teachers have to say about other students and I hope students do the same about me with other students. This teacher particulary scared me, she was saying how this child would run out the door, never sit in her seat, yelling all the time and very hyperactive. I really dislike thinking about this before I even meet her,it is just not fair! I spoke with one of my close colleges and she said she heard of the girls name from another teacher...maybe this Carly girl matured over the summer who knows. It made me upset how the teacher put her"I fought the parents to test her for ADHD." I guess I will have to wait until September 5th to find out for myself. Were you ever informed about a student and the child acted the complete opposite of what you heard?
