I have a student that is a struggling reader. The teacher he had last year has been trying to be helpful and offer advice in order to help him be successful. But lately, her advice has become overwhelming. She wants me to do all this stuff with this student. I know she is invested in this student and wants to see him become a better student but she does not understand what it is like for me. I teach two grades and she only teaches one. I do not have time for all this intervention.
Plus, all of these meetings that she has been insisting with different people in order to help this student make me feel like a lousy teacher. I know that is not her intention but I cannot help feeling that way. I am tired of being told what to do. If they really want me to do all this intervention, they can do it for me.
