Inappropriate Comments to Students
What do you think is the best way to address inappropriate comments a teacher makes to his students? I have overheard him tell them they need their butts worn out, they'll fail fifth grade, they are lazy, etc. His comments are very negative and inappropriate in my opinion.

If I had a report with this teacher I would say something to him without trying to sound accusing. If I did not have a relationship with this teacher I would perhaps mention it to my team leader, that teacher's team leader, or to administration. You are right to want to do something about it because those comments are damaging to children.

This can be an uncomfortable situation, but I would try and initiate a conversation with said teacher about the comments. Approaching this teacher in a positive way will be helpful so that he/she doesn't feel defensive. If that didn't work, I would bring it up with administration.

I would take this directly to the administration and let them handle the issue as they see fit. If a teacher is making these comments they need to be reprimanded and it does not need to come from you- but from above. That teacher needs to understand how damaging these comments are and how much trouble they could get him in. Parents would be outraged if they knew that their son or daughter's teacher was telling them these things! I would also say you should keep documentation that you contacted the administration about this issue.

Anything that involves negative behavior towards a student should be right away brought to the attention of somebody higher up than you. It is your bosses job to have your back as well as protect the students physically and emotionally. Although it may not be your job to directly approach this teacher, it is your job to protect students both physically and emotionally.
