What about talking to the parents of the other kids in the class, maybe they don't know what's going on? Go to the principle and see if there is anything you can do to help her ... She sounds like she is having real problems.
I am going to talk with her one on one on thursday. Our work environment is not the norm. We are a very small group. There are only 5 employees including the director. The director and my Pastors wife (who recommended me for the job) who work with the pre K group three mornings a week and then our class which is the teacher and myself and then another lady that does the mommy and me two year old class.

So we are a close knit group so that kind
Of has it's
Pros and cons. Teacher and I are friends so I'm not going to confront this in any manner that will make things uncomfortable. Director and I have been praying over it and I am going to approach it in a way that leads the conversation to what can we do to make this easier on all of us. What does she expect from Hannah in the classroom, how Hannah feels about some things (not Hannah telling her these things but me telling her), and how we can improve communitcation between us.

I am sort of stuck in an awkward situation... I am mom first but I also have to be professional as TA and also be a friend. Definitely a fine balance.

Teacher is not a bad person... Just makes some bad choices and has difficulty with nuturing and gets overly stressed easily and takes it out on the wrong people.

Nolu, thanks. She's a good girl. She has her moments as any kid
Does but she has a beautiful heart and i just can't bear to see her lose her zest
For life or become disenchanted with te world at such a tender age.

I hope you guys can come to a solution that works for everyone. I wish everyone he best.

I also wanted to stress that I don't in any way think that Hannah or any other child was deserving of that kind of treatment. Kids are cruel enough to each other without teachers Adding to it.

As much as Tanya and I strive to raise this kid and show her the way to go, she always teaches us something too. I hope I never cease to be humbled by her.

I know it's all good.

Today I'm just feeling... sad. I know I need to talk with her but I also know that it's not really going to change anything I'm just... sad

Then I see that the Ultimate Warrior died. A legend from my childhood. That just makes me even sadder

I don't know since I am like a social retard. Maybe approach her one on one as a friend so she doesn't feel like it's some kind of intervention or something LOL and ask of there is something going on that she would want to talk about.

But I do get it about "lashing out" when stressed, I am really bad about getting super irritated and agitated when my stress level go up, it's weird because I don't and never have redirected it on animals, but I am kinda bad about redirecting on people ... But with therepy I have been getting better.

I hope she can find peace as well, I have been in that bad place and it is not fun believe me

I have two humongous deep zits on my chin. And I can't get them to go away. Thought it was getting better last night now they're throbbing and huge again.

I need a quick fix. Driving me nuts.
