This has been on the news here for a couple days (since it happened) since Philla is so close to us. I would be pretty ticked at the teacher for letting this kid poke so many kids. I mean come on, if you were a teacher and one of the kids brought a needle in for show and tell and started poking kids wouldn't you stop her after the first kid she poked? Where was the teacher in all this? The kid obviously didn't know any better but the teacher should have.

I agree. I smell a law suit coming.... (teacher is very negligent and did not excercise common due care/which is a part of her job).

Poor children

At my kids school the children leave the bus and go into the building and into the cafeteria to await the first bell and/or eat breakfast. Normally there are 2 teachers or someone there to help the children get breakfast or assist in other things. It's not a classroom environment, it gets a bit loud like lunchtime. I can totally see this sort of thing going on because I got a call when someone took my daughters glasses off her face (she's only 5) and hid them on her. The staff never saw who did it, and it was up to my 5 year old to point them out. When my daughter heads off to school in the morning, I KNOW what's in her bag. I make sure everything she needs is in there. When she comes home I check her bag- the teachers send home notes on a regular basis with her about upcomming events and whatnot. So I ALWAYS know whats in there. And I will most likely be doing that until she's a teenager...after that I HOPE she knows better. If my kid did something like that I would totally feel at fault...after all she's MY responsibility.

Where in the news story did it say that the teacher let the student poke the kids??

Everyone is so quick to blame the teachers. Having taught 3rd grade, a lot goes on and you can't always watch/see everything. It's sad to say, but true.

Before we get all h*llbent on blaming the teacher, let's put some blames on the parent and the (gasp!) student!

The day it happened (Wed.) it was on the news here. The story was that this 9 year old brought in her mom's diabetes testing kit for show and tell (don't know if the mom knew or not). They said she poked the kids in the classroom. The article posted here says during breakfast and lunch so the news might have gotten their facts wrong the first day. If it was during show and tell then I would blame the teacher.

oh boy..let's not get on another parent/teacher fight here.
I am wondering how fast a child can poke 13 students?!!?! Dang! I can't believe NO child went and told before it got that out of hand.
I just want to point out that Nichole..the way you stated your "finally a parent who knows what is going on with their child" makes me want to go on the defensive! Careful...lol..this could turn into another debate.

It is only my opinion.  You don't have to get upset everytime someone disagrees with your beliefs.

I'm not upset.. You are quick to defend the teacher but just as quick to comment on how you view parents in a negative manner(the finally part makes it sound like you never see parents who care). It's the wording on how you posted that makes me go on the defensive.... :eek: I'm not looking for a fight really..lol just wanted you to know how that post made ME feel as a parent..just as you posted how it made YOU feel as a teacher.
all's great in my camp

It was 19 students and one of them tried to tell the teacher. She told him to sit down. The parents weren't told about anything till 5 hours later.

i'd get that AID's infested needle and poke that girl in the eye. i mean...how stupid can a little girl be???

and i agree with everyone else---i blame the mother! if the mother chooses to be diabetic and chooses to have needles in her home....LOCK THEM UP!! (well, if she wasnt obese....then she didnt choose to be diabetic---BUT STILL
)
