If you’re a parent or guardian of a child, I’m sure you’ll agree with the fact that Monica had to set a bullying teacher straight.
At a recent Box Tops for Education panel discussion, the R&B singer revealed a situation with a new foreign language teacher at her son Romelo’s school. “She (the teacher) decided it was ok to snatch him (Romelo) by his collar and throw him into the cubicle because he wasn’t sitting in the proper seating position,” Monica told the audience. “I took a minute. I did not leave my home immediately because I knew my immediate reaction would be one that I didn’t even want my children to see,” Monica said, “I had to check me first, and that takes a lot. The new me is a better me.”
Upon speaking to the principal, Monica says the children in the class started revealing stories about the teacher; “The children in the classroom began to share these stories of her pinching, pushing, squeezing hands until you get answers correct. She don’t belong ’round mine.”
I know that’s right! One should never over step their boundaries when dealing with other folks children.
