However, Tomas was shocked when he had finally known what was happening at her daughter’s school. The father could only understand what was happening to her daughter when he sneaked into the school. What did he find out at his daughter’s school?
At the beginning of the school, kids were having a problem with how to adjust to their surroundings. Parents should support their kids in every way they can to make them comfortable. The teacher could be friendly or even the other students, but it would always have a more significant effect on the children.
A Tough Adjustment
To the kids, adjusting was difficult for them. A terrible teacher would make it even worse. The time Tomas had realized what was happening to his daughter. The father knew it was the time to make a move and find out what was going on.
She Was Scared
Every parent wants the best thing for their kids. It was natural for them to feel uneasy or concerned when their child was hurt. Tomas was that kind of parent. The father knew something was happening to his daughter and became concerned about her well-being. He also realized that her daughter was acting strangely.
She Became More Emotional
Tomas recognized that his daughter became more emotional when the school had started. At first, the father thought that her daughter was having difficulty adjusting to her new school. However, he understood that there was something else why his daughter had changed.
The Same Routine
Tomas was concerned about her daughter when he saw her crying or in pain. The father asked her daughter to stay at their home when he realized that his daughter was frequently emotional. Every morning, his daughter would always act differently, and the father could not bear what was happening to his daughter anymore.
The Situation Worsened
Months had passed by; Tomas could not see that his daughter was not excited or happy to go into her school. She was beginning to be terrified as the days went on and sometimes asked her father that she did not want to go into her school anymore.
Tomas did try to find what was happening to his daughter. However, the daughter did not want to tell him or his wife the problem at her school. The father knew that he needed to do something for his daughter’s well-being.
Her New School
Tomas’ daughter had begun her kindergarten at Pine Grove Elementary School. Before attending her new school, she was a healthy and jolly girl who was friendly and creative. The father did not experience that he should be bothered about her daughter.
She Began To Change
After his daughter started to take a class from her new school, Tomas realized that his daughter had changed. The daughter had changed and also became emotional. The father knew that the reason why her daughter was acting strange was because of her new school. It might be because of the other teachers, students, or the place where she was studying.
Did Well In School
Before she was studying in her current school, she was great at her academics. The daughter got high grades and also had a great job in doing reports. She was always cheerful and would not think anything that would make her sad. However, a few months after she started to attend class at her new school, she began failing her classes.
Feeling So Powerless
Most of all, the daughter was distressed when she returned home after classes. Tomas could only feel powerless when he saw her daughter emotional. The father knew that he needed to know what was happening to his daughter.
The Concerned Father
We knew that every parent was concerned about their little kids. Tomas did not like to see her daughter was suffering every time she returned home after school. The father was concerned about her. Every time he tried to know the truth, he felt distant from his daughter. Tomas understood what was happening to her daughter.
A Stable, Happy Life
Tomas tried to think of every possibility of what was happening to his daughter. The father thought that her daughter was being bullied by other students or maybe her teachers. He could not think of anything wrong with their family because they were happy. Tomas understood that it might be outside of their home.
Patience Is A Virtue
We knew that patience was essential to our life. However, we should not forget the virtues. These two were hard to apply in our daily lives, but it would help grow a better person. When we tackle children, we should apply these two when we take care of them. We knew that handling little one was challenging, yet as a teacher, we should be patient as we could be to teach them everything they needed to learn.
Her Formative Years
Tomas’ daughter was at a young age when she experienced distress in her life. She was at the formative age, where she should be molded into a proper adult. The daughter needed to learn and experience everything she could to use it in the future.
Preparation For The Future
Tomas, with his wife, had one son and two girls. The family was always cheerful in their life. They encouraged their children to be better people. The parents knew that it was essential for the little ones to create a strong sense to their children and prepare them for the future.
More Harm Than Good
We should remember that a terrible teacher would change our little ones. Tomas and her wife did not want their daughter to experience it, especially at a young age. The parent was suspicious of what was happening to their daughter.
Creating A Plan
Tomas had an attitude of being resourceful. The father had made up his mind and tried to find out what was happening to their daughter. It was difficult for him to learn the truth because her daughter could not say what was happening in her life.
Time To Take Action
Tomas could not see his daughter sad anymore. Every day, he could see his daughter get more distress in her life. It was the time that he needed to do something. The only question in his mind was, “how?” The father tried to think every possible way he could. In the end, he planned something to know what was happening to his daughter.
How Would He Do It?
Tomas tried to think about how he could enter the school without anyone recognizing him. The father knew that if he requested to watch a class for a day, the teacher would not show her real behavior. He knew that he needed to plan this properly to know what was happening to his daughter.
Hidden Hearing Device
Tomas planned to ‘listen in’ inside the class of her daughter. The father developed a small hearing device and put it on his daughter’s hair. It would let him listen to the environment of her daughter inside the school. He hoped that it would capture what his daughter was experiencing that made her distress.
Tomas also thought it might be a desperate move, but it was the only way to know what was occurring at her daughter’s school. It would also become evidence against the people who hurt or made his daughter cry. The father also did not tell his daughter about the device put on his daughter’s hair because it might distract her while she had a class.
Tomas was waiting for what would happen in his daughter’s school. The father patiently waited for her daughter to return from her school. He was excited when his daughter came towards him. Tomas was thrilled that he could see his daughter smile again.
As Tomas got the device planted on her daughter’s hair, he listened to what it had captured. The father was surprised at what he had heard on that device. Tomas was angry about what the recording had captured. However, he was content that he already knew what was happening to her daughter.
The Source Of The Problems
The device had captured the terrible teacher to all the students. As Tomas continued to listen, he realized that it might be the reason why his daughter was distressed. He was amazed at the device, but he understood that he should not waste a single minute to help his daughter.
Tomas knew that the teacher was using her position to terrorize the students. The father was hurt because the instructor who they trusted was mean to her daughter and children. Tomas could not believe that the teacher was the reason why her daughter was emotional.
What To Do?
As Tomas continued to listen to the recording, he realized that the teacher did not only say offensive words but also the way she was talking was mean. The device captured how the instructor yelled at the students for a little reason. The father thought about what he should do next.
Sick To His Stomach
Tomas did not like what he had heard on the device. The father was determined to take the issue to the public school district. When this happened to our little ones, we should find a person who had the authority to do something about the terrible teacher.
Filing A Complaint
Rather than facing the teacher with himself, Tomas decided to bring the issue into the state school board. The father planned when he would go and also told the officer what had happened to his daughter.
Their Poor Response
Tomas had a valid reason why he had complained to the teacher in that school, but he had no concrete evidence to back his complaints. The school district could not do anything to help the father and his daughter. Tomas was disappointed in the decision of the school district. The father was furious at how the terrible teacher treated her students every day.
No Action Taken
We knew what the father felt on that day. The school district did not do anything about the terrible teacher. The district announced that they had disciplined the instructor for her action. Tomas did not just want to make her behave, but something more than it should be.
Making His Point
Tomas was not content with the district’s decision, yet the mean instructor was still teaching her daughter and other students at the class. The father could not do anything and felt terrible. However, he knew that he should do something about Duncan, the kindergarten teacher, by himself.
A Parent’s Duty
Tomas’ daughter offered to move his daughter to another class, yet he thought about the other children. The father was also concerned about the classmate of his daughter. He knew as a parent that he should protect not only his child but also other children.
For The Kids
He was displeased about the decision of the school. They did not change the teacher or made a decision that would make the instructor regret what she did. Tomas also knew that the teacher had done something horrible. It would affect children’s lives forever. Tomas and the other parents tried complaining about the teacher. However, the school was not affected by their protest. The parents did not back down.
Signing A Petition
Later, the word of what was happening in the class of Duncan got out. Everyone knew how the teacher treated the young one. Tomas did not get enough help on the attempts he made. However, everything changed when he made a petition on the change.org Sooner, other people also assisted him in fighting for his cause. There were two thousand signatures that agreed to dismiss Duncan.
The Media Spotlight
Tomas did not expect he would be in the news all over the media. Local news tackles about what was happening at Pine Grave. The people were inspired by what he had done, mostly when he was determined to get the instructor’s proper punishment.
The Entire Country
Later, Tomas’ story about the terrible teacher had spread throughout the nation. It was known to all the people in the country. The viewers knew how terrible the teacher was to the little ones. The school did not dismiss the horrible teacher, yet the father knew that there would be a chance to change.
Preventing Childhood Traumas
The teacher did something horrible that would affect the little one’s life. If the little ones would be in her care for a long time, the children might get bad habits and fear her for an extended time.
What Could Have Been
If Tomas did not recognize what was happening to his daughter, he would not get to the source why his daughter is distressed. It might also cause trauma in her entire life. It would be severe not only for his daughter but also for other kids too.
Being A Mentor
Parents knew that it was challenging to be a proper mentor for our kids. We needed to know how to judge every behavior that the child was doing. It was not an easy task, yet it was essential to be a great model for our kids.
The Best Parent Possible
No matter how hard he tried, Tomas understood that he could not be the perfect parent or model for his children. However, he would do anything to make sure his daughters were safe and also his son. The father also knew that he could not tolerate what the teacher did to other children.
A Teacher’s Responsibility
An instructor’s responsibility was to teach the students the lesson under the curriculum and the things needed to become a proper adult. The instructor needed to enhance the creativity of the child. It would also be an inspiration for some of the students. A teacher should be a model for the little ones.
Her Father’s Efforts
It was not the right action, especially for the teacher to use terrible behavior and also dominance. It would only scare the children and make them more uneasy. However, did Tomas change something for the other children?
Holding Onto Hope
Duncan, Tomas’ daughter’s teacher, was still teaching at the school, yet we just hoped that she realized everything terrible. Tomas was still clinging that something would change at the school where his daughter was studying.
Lives At Stake
We thought that the school was putting their reputation on the teacher that had a short temper. Tomas also learned that he could not change a thing if he did not know how to fight for what is right. The father anticipated something would change in the system of the school. He just wanted to make sure that her daughter and other children would not be hurt or harmed by mistreating teachers.
Making Them Stronger
It was a tough time for Tomas and his daughter. However, it made them a healthier family. The father also knew that he would not know what was happening to his daughter if he did not put a device on his daughter’s hair.
A Better Dad
After the incident, his daughter was taught by another teacher. Tomas understood that it was essential to look and take care of his children. It made him a better father and also a better model.
Tomas would always be with his family, and children and the parents would defend their kids, especially when they were mistreated. A great parent could determine if their children had any trouble in their life. If Tomas did not recognize what was happening to his daughter, the teacher might continue to abuse them.
After the daughter left the hospital, the parents knew where she was interested. It was also an attitude of being a great parent. Tomas and his wife Laici knew every need of their three children.
To make sure that our kids grow into a proper adult, we should support our kids and help them grow. If we had a stronger bond with our kids, it would help them be better people as they grew up. Aliya was fortunate that she had the best support system.
