The Wrath of Mrs. Khan

I was whining about my daughter’s class last week.

The school has started sending the second graders in Mrs. Valasek’s class to a second grade math class. The teacher’s name is Mrs. Khan.

Mrs. Khan has a little problem with germs. On Alissa’s first day in her class she sent her home for coughing in class. She told Alissa that she didn’t want to catch her cold. I think she may have been joking, but Alissa didn’t understand and thought she was mad at her.

So she spent the rest of her school day at work with me, not a cough all day.

The principle of my daughter’s school called us yesterday. He said he had an opening for her in a second grade class if we wanted it. “Why do you say it like that?” I asked. “Its Mrs. Khan’s class,” he replied. “She is a little ...ridged.”

As you may know, we are trying to get Alissa into a different class. But this seemed a little weird. It sounded like the principle wasn’t sure this was a good idea.

We asked the school counselor what she thought about the move. We gave her the low down on Alissa and that we thought she might need a teacher with a little softer touch. She agreed, and we will just continue to wait for a different class to open up.

Feel free to ad-lib a Star Trek 2 line except it is Mrs. Khan instead of (Ricardo Montalban) Khan.

For example- “Math is a dish best served cold.”

Now I am all freaked out about ear wigs again, thanks dude. Maybe you should send Mrs. Khan an airborn and germ-x gift basket, just until you get a new teacher. Sounds like her principal is a real gem.

"I've done far worse than kill you, Malathionman. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave Alyssa as you left me: marooned for all eternity in the center of 2nd grade..."

Nora-I should send her an ear wig.

Chris-Nice, very nice.

Malathionman said...

Chris- Wait a second, I think the correct response would be, CCCHHHRRIIIISSSSSS!!!!!

The attitude of your school is making me mad on your behalf. It sounds like they need a slap upside the head. Sounds like the principal has the principles of a wet lettuce. As for Mrs Khan…… she has to live with herself, that’s punishment enough.

Holy Cow, I hope Dave doesn't give me that sentence that is rough. I could not handle living with myself.

Dave said...

@WHM - LMAO. I was in a harsh mood when I wrote that. I don't mean what I say half the time. I still think she needs a slap upside the head though. :)

Anyway, you were going to send her the flu virus (amongst other delights) hehehehehe.

Nora- Dave is "hungry" right now, I wouldn't piss him off. :) If you check out his page you'll know what I mean.

You know I am a little testy at the moment. I seem to have got all revved up of something, I just don't really know what it is yet.

And until I find out, I'm going to take it out on Mrs Khan. Ha!
