My poor baby!

We went to PM's kindergarten orientation last night. We walked up to the posts for which child is in which class and I almost burst into tears when I saw who he got. You see, all along, I have been told by several parents that you do not want your kid in this one teacher's class. Apparently, she is pretty mean/stern. She isn't the warm and fuzzy type. Well, that's who he got. I kept the tears in and went to meet her. She has zero personality. I don't think I saw her smile one time. All of the other classes got a full folder of information, including the student handbook. We got nothing! The only thing she handed out were the drop off circle picture, showing where to drop them off, and a one page sheet about the cafeteria payment system. His bf is across the hall. His class, like most of the others, even had their assigned seats already. I am just sick over this. I know it can't be all that bad, but my little man needs the warm and fuzzy!!! I also heard that she was talked to by the administration when she came from the other elementary school to this one (when the split the two schools from both doing K-5 to one K-1 and the other 2-5). Apparently, she is a very black/white person and there is no middle ground with her.

I have to be positive and keep an open mind in front of PM, or it will just add to his anxiety. But, I am so worried about him! He is a go with the flow type of kid, so once he gets over the initial anxiety, I think he will be fine. Mommy on the other hand, I don't know about...

Awwwww.... crud.

Seriously though? Maybe he'll be ok. Perhaps the black/white thing will make things easy for him to understand. Hang in there!
