It is worse than unprfessional. This is a situation where you are trusting someone to teach your child something they obviously can not do themselves. I would bring it up to the principal and the teacher. If it happens again, I would consider calling the school board. Would you ask a doctor to work on you that could not administer the proper care?

Mnmaggiemn, not to nitpick, but your last sentence would be easier to follow if it had read, "Would you ask a doctor who could not administer the proper care to work on you?". And, in the second sentence, "someone" does not match "they" or "themselves". I won't mention a minor misspelling but perhaps you (and nearly everyone who posts comments) could proofread before posting. I heartily agree that proper spelling and grammar are important.

farmerette, I am not a spelling or english major nor do I teach either. They can be used in plural or singular form. And as far as the last sentecne is concernd, you obviously had no problem understanding the sentence. Yes, I do proof read in the professional world. I apologize if you find my post offensive. I dont understand your condescending attitude or bad manners but you may want to work on that.
