Worried about the horror stories his child was telling when he came home, a parent decided to take matters into his own hands. He recorded several days of class using a device hidden in the backpack.

“With young children, you have to take it and leave it,” explained the parent. But there, the stories often came back, I had to know what was really going on.

What he heard made his blood run cold. Several dozen times a day, the teacher can be heard shouting, yelling, threatening, intimidating, using inappropriate language and even verbal abuse, all directed directly at the 6 and 7 year old students. On at least two occasions, she appears to be directly mocking a child using a disparaging tone.

Traces among students

This behavior seems to have traumatized some young people. Another parent explained that one evening, when his child had just finished an assignment that seemed very satisfying, he still insisted on doing it again because he “did not follow the instructions of his teacher to the letter. teacher”.

  • Pascal Bérubé, MP for the Parti Québécois in Matane, also reacted to this news in an interview with Benoît Dutrizac on QUB-radio:

When his parents tried to convince him that the work met expectations, he started crying, then ended up doing it all over again, mentioning that “the teacher wouldn’t be happy.”

Where is the direction?

According to one of our sources, the teacher’s behavior is known within the school and even in other schools in the region. One wonders how no one heard the screams in the hallways. However, nothing seems to have been done on the management side to resolve the situation.

We tried to find out if any complaints had been filed against the first-grade teacher. The school principal did not respond to our interview request.

For its part, the Center de services scolaire des Mille-Îles informed TVA Nouvelles by email that the offending teacher was currently suspended “for investigation purposes”.

“We have deployed our critical incident team to the school in order to put in place a safety net for students, staff and parents,” said the Center de services scolaire des Mille-Îles.
