Thank you so much to all the dedicated teachers who never get any credit, i know i could not do their job. it is bad enough trying to get the home work done every evening with my own children!! Thank you to my own primary school teacher who knew i was scared in my new school and did so much to help me fit in, thank you to the teachers who do sport and musicals giving every child the chance to shine.The problem is with the bad teachers who through a sarcastic personal comment can destroy a child, make them hate school and as a result will do no work!! Teenagers are impossible in lots of ways and it cannot be fun trying to maintain control with big numbers but we must remember who is the adult in the room and who has the training to deal with these kids. Parents have no power to deal with bad teachers other than to take their kids out of the school, surely this isnt right?
