“A teacher notices that a parent volunteer who has questioned the teachers methods will only with with  white students”    Helen Franklin ​- First Grade Teacher  Doris Baxter​ - Parent, Minority Rep, her son Tom tells his mom “Mrs. Isaac doesn't like  __________​me.”  Jane Isaac ​- Parent, doesn’t care for Helen, or her methods. Has a high level daughter,  _________​Emily.    Doris Baxter calls Helen to report another parent; Jane Isaac, could be a bigot.  Helen has two problems with Jane. Jane does not like the curriculum taught in Helen’s  class. Jane had, many times critiqued Helen and her teaching style. Jane had even  complained to the central office about Helen’s classroom.    In 19 years of teaching, Helen has not had a serious problem with a parent  volunteer.    Some people referred to Helen’s class as an “open classroom”. Helen believes  her teaching style provides structure, and helps to develop self-reliance and discipline.  Her class did lots of individual work in a loose style. The children could do their assigned  work at several locations, but they had to work on their own. The could also participate  in circle time while the other children were working as well. Helen had different parent  volunteers to help with the other kids while she could focus on circle time, and those  students who needed more of a one on one approach.    Helen’s class had a big mix of kids; half white, half minority, as well as exceptional  learners of varying degrees, and ELL students.    Three of her students were exceptionally bright, including Jane’s daughter Emily.  Helen thinks it’s possible that the reason for Jane’s behavior is that she is jealous of the  other time Helen spends with the two other high-achievers besides Emily.    Jane is only interested in the high-achievers when she is in the classroom, while  the parent volunteers are supposed to be there to help all of the children. When asked  to work with some of the low level children, Jane made faces, and then would find some  reason to leave the students and go back to the higher learners.     At first Helen wants to give Jane the benefit of the doubt, but after Doris’s call,  she's just not sure anymore.
