I teach a class that the kids are hand picked to be in. Parents are met with and their child is observed before they are allowed to enroll in the class. I had a student two years ago that I fell in love with. Her father has remarried and has a step-daughter that was enrolled in my class last year. Step dad and his ex wife have a great relationship and both were very helpful in my class when I had the oldest child. The ex is such a part of their lives, that she keeps the one I currently have before and after school. So I am very familiar with the family and have a great relationship with them. Well, Tuesday was conferences. Bio dad came to lunch and was bad mouthing mother in front of the child. I walked away. He got upset because he wanted to sit in a part of the cafeteria that was not being used. I asked him to please sit at the end of my table...a good eight seats or more away from other kids. That pissed him off and he got ugly with me. I ignored him and did my lunchroom duty. While I was walking around the cafeteria doing my duty, I stopped to welcome him to lunch. He started in on ex and what a _____ she was. I walked away. He then stopped me to find out when conferences where. I told him later that night, but I was willing to with him after lunch (I didn't want to surprise mom with inviting him to conference with her.) So after lunch he walked me down to my room. His daughter had her math that she had not completed because she threw a fit and wouldn't work before lunch. That made him mad. He then started telling me all these wild stories about all the different jobs he has had and how successful his business is. I smiled and tried to redirect him back to the child. As I started pointing out that she had "B's" on her report card, but was capable of "A's" he became very upset with me. He then started telling me that it was the ex's fault. He started saying that the lack of discipline at her home was why the little girl was not doing better...that is complete opposite of what I see. And I did spend a year getting close to the family two years ago and since friends. I stopped him when he started calling stepdad names and calling the mother a ______. I had a teacher stop by and remind me of a meeting down the hall, so I told him that I needed to go. We had been talking for over 15 minutes and it was my lunch time. I walked him to the copier room to make copies of her report card and test results. He then turned to go out the playground door. I stopped him and told him that parents weren't allowed on the playground. That made him mad and he told me that the principal would allow him....I told him that is fine, but he had to go get her to walk him out there. I was not breaking rules for him. He left in a huff. He was rude to the office because they agreed with me. Fast forward to later in the night. Stepdad and mom came to conference. They apologized for him and told me not to worry about him. He had called mother demanding that the child be removed from my room because I was a B---- and I was rude to him. Mom said he was on the phone before he got out of the parking lot. He then threatened to call the administration office to get me fired. She told him that they loved me and they were not removing the child from my room. That made him mad at her and then he told her he was going to the board to complain about me. She told him that she would be there to support me. At conference mother told me he was not allowed to pick the child up from school early. That was one of the reasons he was mad at the office. They refused to let him take her off campus for lunch. Mom has custodial rights and she has a court order that says he can't take her. Mom and stepdad apologized and told me not to talk to him...go through mom. I went to my principal and shared what happened. She told me not to worry. I was just upset that one man can turn my day bad. I had fifteen conferences and the rest were wonderful. But he left me so frustrated.
