Drill Sargeant and Tears

So the other day my eight year old comes home and tells me that she had the meanest teacher on the face of the planet for pe that day. That she had been yelled at, they had been punished and that they were miserable for the rest of the day....I asked her if she had joined the army instead of going to school. She looked at me like I was from a foreign planet...i laughed and asked her what had happened. She told me that the teacher had called them all babies, she had told them to shut up (several times) and that she yelled at a little girl when she fell down and told her not to be a cry baby. WOW....the whole class was terrified and could not wait for class to end. Their teacher caught a few stories the next day and immediately went to solve the situation. I don't think that substitute will be coming back....i wonder if any of these kids will be affected and every time they see an army commercial run away shrieking in terror....all because the drill sargeant subsituted when they were in the second grade.
