Kindergarten Teacher Leaves Insulting Message on Mom's Voicemail (VIDEO)

school classroomDo you know what your kids' teachers think of them? Wait, scratch that. Would you WANT to know? Because a mom in Ohio was shocked by a message left on her voicemail by her 7-year-old's teacher.

It seems the educator forgot to hang up the phone before voicing her opinion about the kindergartner to a colleague. Needless to say, what Ashley Moore heard about her son was none too complimentary.

The 7-year-old was allegedly called the "biggest baby" in class, while his mom was said to likely still wipe her child's butt. Take a listen:

Is it any wonder the little boy's family says he hasn't wanted to go to school for months? With a teacher who thinks that "highly" of him?

The fact is, not every teacher is going to love every kid. Some kids are NOT well behaved in school. Disruption after disruption can wear down even the educators who love and adore "all" children.

Not to mention, some personalities just don't mesh well. It's human nature that some people will not be the best of buds. Hence, teachers do not have to like every kid in their class.

They do, however, have to treat every child in their class with respect. They have to try their best to teach every child in a classroom, and they have to treat kids equally.

That's what it really comes down to -- not having your kid "liked" by a teacher so much as having your kid treated fairly. If an educator can't get past their dislike of a child enough to treat them like the other kids, they need to find a new profession.

Do you care if your kids' teachers like them? What DO you expect from a teacher?

I am not naive enough to think that my children will be the teachers favorite. I do believe that their teachers better be (or at least act) impartial.

Why is he still in kindergarten when he is 7? If my child teacher left a message on my cell phone like that about my child, I would never let my child hear it or annouce it to the world...poor kid. I would talk to the teacher and principal and have my child removed from her class though.

Zandhmom, a lot of states these days have changed the age to start Kindergarten to 7. Anyway, his age doesn't matter that teacher should not have spoken about him in that manner. I believe she is the one with no common sense.

This teacher should be reprimanded. There is no excuse for such behaviour. It was obviously done on school/work time if it was while leaving a voicemail for his parents.


This is so beyond unethical and shows a lack of morals. I would not like my child to attend a school where a teacher could speak so poorly about a child. But then again, my children go to a school where it is open, honest, and if the teacher has problems they work so closely with the parents, that we even have our son's teachers personal cell and home number. This should be the standard of teachers, not whoever this poor excuse for a teacher is.

What a suprise. Her child is called "the biggest baby in the class" (not to his face) and mommy runs to the media because his teacher is soooo mean. Wonder if there's any truth to the teachers observation.

I am going to school myself to be a teacher and know that I may have students that are misbehaved and not want to listen, but that does NOT mean I will treat them differently. I'm sure this teacher is not rude to this student for the child to not want to b in school anymore..I feel that the mother just wanted attention and wanted her face on the camera. For her to go to that extremes and withdraw her son is obsurd. I don't think she needed to take this to the news and put that teacher on blast.

Looks like the teacher was right in the description of the 7 year old kindergartner!!! This mom is not doing her kid any favors. So she got butthurt oh well! She was telling a coworker that this boy is a big baby not the actual kid. GET OVER iT lady.

I think the teacher should have told the mother how she felt about the child's emotional and social development before, instead of complaining to a colleague.
