This morning Aubry tells me that her reading teacher told her "only god knows the number." I asked her what number she says you know like when you're dead. Ahhh. I told her that what her teacher stated is not exactly true. This led into a conversation about what god/jesus is and how it is very inappropriate for her teacher to tell her that. I explained to her that those are her teacher's beliefs and that is fine however in school no adults should be talking to her about god or religion. She is in 1st grade at a public school.

my son is also in 1st grade this year. He came home last year from Kindergarten talking about god putting dinosaurs on earth and then he created people. Yea, I was peeved, but then realized the small community we live in, and the entire population of this town is strict Christian. So I just let it go. Now that he is older, by a year LOL, he has heard more and today made a comment about heaven is a place you go when you die. So I asked him if he really believes that when you die you go sit in the clouds and all of that. He said yep and you get to be an angel. So I am sure that someone is telling him something, because we do not speak of anything like this in our household. Either daycare or school and he is only in daycare for 45 minutes a day so not really thinking its there.

Being a major science geek, the dinosaur part would have made me throw a HUGE fit.

Ah, how unprofessional of the teacher...

I am student teaching right now so I work with a teacher in her own classroom. Anyway, she is a devoted Christian and always says things like this. God this, God that... and I'd love to say something to her about it but I'm a guest in her classroom so I just let it go. Makes me mad every time she said something like "God did this... and well I believe in God, I KNOW he is real" I don't think its a teachers place to talk about anything religious with their students.
