I feel like my daughters teacher bullies her: Advice?

I just need to vent. So the last two days of school before Christmas break, I kept my kids home from school cause all they had planned was movies. My son is in kindergarten, and my daughter is in 7th grade. Apparently, my daughter has a science teacher who isn’t the nicest to her. My daughter is very smart and has always loved school; she’s even got her future university picked out; she wishes to attend Harvard University. Well, this teacher is always on her, and on the last day of school, she told another student who happens to be my daughter’s best friend, told this young girl, I don’t think Jocelyn is going to pass 7th grade. Umm, excuse me? I’m sorry not only is that rude, but very unprofessional! This isn’t the first time she’s said something snide to her either; it’s come to the point where my daughter broke down in tears last night saying she doesn’t want to go back to school. So I’ve decided to remove her and switch to an online school till we move. I’m going to be calling the school board tomorrow to make a complaint. I don’t tolerate bullying from other children, and I sure won’t tolerate it from a grown adult.

Before you do anything I would ask for a meeting with the teacher.

This happened to me in high school. A teacher straight up told the entire class I was dumb (I struggled with algebra) and that I wasn’t going to ever go to college. I left school that day sat in my mom’s car she looked at me asked what was wrong I broke down in tears my mom quick flipped that car around and went into the school and went OFF

I agree it is very unprofessional however there are two sides to every story. How did you find out she told your daughters friend this? Have you spoke to the teacher?
I ask this because we had a similar issue with my oldest son in 3rd grade. Unfortunately it came out to be an issue with the teacher.
I hope it works out.

I had a 7th grade math teach ask me what part I didn’t get; the easy part or the easier part. My mom didn’t believe me at first she called one of my classmates and asked her and this girl repeated it verbatim to my mom

Coming from a teacher and I’m a parent of a middle school girl, and I’m not excusing any behaviors. But, there are always two sides. My daughter has told me things her teachers say as well. I have to take some of them with a grain of salt. Have you talked to the teacher? Maybe email her and cc the principal on the email. The school board is not the correct way to go.

School board won’t do anything about in class concerns. Bring it to the Principal.

Confront the teacher herself. I have had issues like this in the past.

Thank you for listening to your daughter and supporting her–too many parents do not do that. My youngest had a bully teacher in 2nd grade–while she was not a victim herself, she came home terrified over what the teacher was doing to other students (she really picked on black boys I found out when I volunteered in the classroom to keep an eye on things). Bullying effects all students not just the victims–so please report them

I would contact the school about that. Secondly good job for choosing to remove her. We did something similar with my second grader because her anxiety got so bad around a teacher and hed refuse to let her use the bathroom… anxiety = stomach issues and it got to the point she had an accident in class because he would not let her go period no matter what.
Due to the nit so nice nature of kids with things like this we gave her the option to switch out of his class or move schools all together.
She was going to a doctor for the anxiety and even had meds for the stomach issues prior to this teacher problem.

I had a teacher like her. I was a straight A student before her, and after her class I would just quit for the day and it was only my second period. She called my mother and complained that I never spoke in class discussions so I tried to speak up and she would call and say that I wouldn’t stop speaking out in class. Couldn’t win, told her to shove it and dropped her class.
