Hi Friends, My daughter goes for a class where the teacher has an arrogant disposition. She will reprimand when any child goes wrong and give snappy answers when asked any question. She is very knowledgeable, in her mid thirties and a spinster (so obviously no kids of her own). She is respected well in the society for her work. She teaches well too... I think. My child has started this class only 1&1/2 to 2 months ago. Most other teachers are very polite and lovey dovey with the kids, only this lady is like this. My daughter sometimes feels hurt when the teacher rebukes her for something. When I happened to talk about this class to other parents, I realized that all the parents are aware of the teacher's nature but are continuing because (1) she's very good at her work and (2) they think the kids need to face unpleasant people/ situations in real life later anyway. So this class & this teacher will introduce them to it. They feel it's good that someone is strict in an otherwise cushiony-lovey-dovey environment. The teacher is rude to parents as well. So I am not sure if she's actually arrogant or that's just her style of speaking to others. What do you think?
