In this podcast I cover a few things. First, what do bad teachers look like? How do they behave? Next, what can you do about it as a parent and, lastly, what can your child do about making it through the year in once piece having learned what they need to.
Three types of bad teachers:
Fluffy - ones that are nice but don't teach the material
Boring - ones that put you to sleep they are so uninspiring
Mean - ones that yell and are just plain mean; they might have favorites in the class and spend all their time with them; they might get mad at kids who don't understand
In the podcast I go over a step-by-step approach on what to do. Read the transcript listed below if you'd like more details.
1 - Wait and See while doing research
2 - Communicate with the school
3 - Teach your child ways to cope with the bad teacher
