Hi everyone! Although I've been teaching 12 years, this is my second year in this district. I was at one school for 9 years and had tenure. Due to a move, I had to go to another district and was nonrenewed. Now, I'm at my current school on a tenure track. Anyway, especially with my previous job experience, I know you have to be careful how you say things. I teach kindergarten. All of my students have no experience being in a school setting. None have done prek or daycares. Either someone was home or parents were afraid to bring their children out. My child have very low social skills. I have a mix of, with no inbetween!, five year olds who act like 2 year olds or 21 year olds. One child is very extreme. For example, they were saying what they saw on House of Dragons. Of course I know it's a parenting issue and not being around other children. This is what really bothered me. After we talked about (in a postive manner) what we should talk about at school, this child became sarcastic. I was working with another child, this child looked directly at me and said in a sarcastic manner of voice "Did you see Encanto?! It's a REALLY nice movie!". I knew it was to get a reaction. I ignored it. Then, throughout that day, this child keep saying sarcastic comments about children's shows and movies. This has been going on for almost two months. Everyday it's something different (media, something the child saw in person, ect). Since, I've been ignoring it, now the child says inappropriate comments to me. Like I dyed my hair and it came out not how I wanted. I happened to mention it to a coworker in front of the class. 5 minutes later I heard "Ms. Annoyed has ugly hair". I simply told the child "Please don't talk to me or your classmate likes that". I was wondering how to approach this with the parents. I notice during dismissal, this child speaks like an adult with them. It seems to me the parents think this is normal behavior. Please help. While looking for advice, I can not hear to ignore this. I will not last all year by doing that. I know this post focused on myself a lot, this child speaks in an unpleasant manner to their classmates all day. I don't want to get into a million details and id myself. I'm sorry this is so long.
