Disclaimer: I am not the mom who thinks her kids are perfect. FAR FROM IT.
Today, I was thoroughly dismissed by the big monkey's teacher. She sent about a 1/3 of the class to be tested for the gifted program and my monkey was not one of those kids. When I called to ask her about it, she basically told me that she didn't think that she would do well on the test. According to her, it was primarily a math test.
Now, this is the same teacher who just last week told me that she was doing REALLY well in math and reading and that she just needed to work on comprehension. This was in response ot me asking what the monkey could work on in the summer to do well in 2nd grade.
She also spewed some BS about it being a "spacial" test but couldn't explain to me what that meant! Then she pretty much dismissed me.
I'm PISSED OFF!! I wouldn't be pissed if my monkey didn't do well on the test and was found out not to be gifted. I am PISSED OFF that she dismissed me by giving me a BS answer.
I think I'm going to get her independently tested. This is not because I think that she "MUST BE" gifted - it's because you CAN'T tell me "no" to something that involves my monkey's future and expect me to take your word for it.
