    Admirable...

    I think it is pretty admirable to have your child in your class. Odds are he will remember you always as being his teacher.

    Last year, our K/1 teacher had both of her own kids in her class. Sometimes, they just would not work for her or respond to her, so we made an arrangement that they would come into my class to calm down, regroup, and more. It really helped the teacher to have somewhere to send them (especially since she spent about 24 hours a day with them).

    On a funny note...last year I went to observe an old mentor teacher in her class. I had been in her class earlier in the year, and on this second visit noticed a few new faces. One of the kids was really messing around, talking about pot and other appropriate things while the teacher was doing a lesson. He was putting together a paper airplane and more, and distracting the other kids. After the lesson, I went up to the teacher and said "Wow, looks like you got your hands full with that new boy." She blushed and said, "Oh, he's mine. And believe me, he's going to get it at home tonight." I know she had had another of her son's in her class, and he was an angel. But this was her youngest. She was so embarrassed at his behavior. I reassured her that at least I wasn't the principal or anything.
