Disrespectful teacher
Lately I have been noticing a teacher being incredibly disrespective to a particular student. This student has a lot of isssues including behavioral and academic. The teacher is at her wits end and I find her losing her patience very often. Some of the things she says and gossips about (to the student) can be harsh. This student isnt a bad student, especially when he feels like you respect him. What should I do? Administration has done nothing.

I would try to discuss with the teacher herself about her attitude towards the child. Mention what you are perceiving from how she speaks to the students, and see if what she is intending it to be is different. Maybe having someone directly observing her behavior ans mentions it will bring it to light so she can address and correct it.

It is an awkward situation but I would not gossip about the teacher with other teachers just talk to her and be honest. Think about the student that is effected in this situation and how these interactions are affecting him.

While it might be uncomfortable, I would suggest saying something to the teacher about her behavior. She may not be fully aware of what is going on. I would also consider going to administration again to help solve the problem.

I know that I have been totally unaware of my own volume before. It wasn't until someone said something that I realized I would get loud and it sounded mean. I've improved since, and I was grateful.

I would personally go over to the teacher and confront her about the things you have been noticing. Also, go back to administration because this is more serious. Positivism and transparency goes a long way.

If you have any sort of relationship with the teacher, I would say that you should start there, and pull them aside to express your concerns. However, do not do it in an attacking way, as that is likely to put the person on the defense. Instead, as you say, you recognize that they are at their wits end, and maybe offer some suggestions on how the teacher can approach deal with the student better in the future. Since it also sounds like you may have a bit of a relationship with the student, you can also start there, and try to get them to begin behaving better in the class (so the teacher is not at their wits end) and being disrespectful to the student.

Yet, if you do not have a relationship with the teacher, and you think what they are doing is unethical, then you do need to report their behavior to administration. That last part though is your call - as you know what is being said and is the only one able to make this decision based on those actions.

Talk to the teacher and try to give advice on how the student is receptive when treated with respect.

As you are an intern, this matter should be handled with your intern supervisor. This environment may not be the right one for you.

I would model for the teacher how she should be speaking with the student and in a positive way. I would also talk to administration again, and continue to do so. If that isn't working, then maybe someone from the school district should get involved.

This sounds like it needs to be discussed with the higher order in the school. This is not acceptable.

Sit down with the teacher to figure out what is the problem between the teacher and the student. Move on to having a talk between the student to figure out his/her situation in the teacher's classroom. Even include the parents to the meetings. Lastly collect information from both sides to come to a conclusion to fix this situation between the teacher and student. Include the parents.
