    Found out my daughter's 5th grade teacher played the Iowa fight song in class

    So my daughter has a typical tavernhawk for a teacher. She is a UNI grad, but professed die hard Hawk. Found out yesterday after the game that on Friday when the kids were wearing their team's colors, she told the kids with ISU stuff on that they would be "sad" on Monday because Iowa was going to win. She then followed that up by playing the Iowa fight song in class.
    My initial reaction was to do something (complain to the principal) and get her reprimanded for segregating a group of students like that, but I like her as a teacher so far and good teachers are hard to come by these days. I'm also sure she didn't mean any harm and was just displaying her natural tavernhawk behavior.
    What I've decided to do is to have my daughter approach her tomorrow at the beginning of the day and say in an innocent voice "At least you'll probably be happy next weekend when UNI beats Iowa".

    What say you CF? Should I have her hand slapped or should I just have my daughter tease her with the UNI statement? Maybe you have a better suggestion?

    This is 5th grade in Waukee schools.

    My initial gut reaction would be to tell you not to be a little ***** about it, but let me think on it some more.

    yeah...don't disagree with you, thus I said I back off getting her hand slapped. I think the UNI comment is appropriate

    Sounds like you already have an appropriate solution. Buy her a Panther shirt for just this occassion!

    That would be my reaction.

    Nothing wrong with some good natured ribbing between fans. That's kinda what the rivalry is all about.

    Would have been nice though if after doing it she said something to the affect that they should remember it's just a fun game between two good schools and may the best team win.

    Re: Found out my daughter's 5th grade teacher played the Iowa fight song in class

    I went to school in 5 different towns in Iowa when I was growing up. Every school had fun w/ the ISU-Iowa gameweek which included teachers playing their school's fight song, having "choose your team" dress up days, etc.

    Most of my teachers were Hawkeye fans and teased us about being ISU fans, but we saw it for what it was...teasing and nothing more. It's not like your kid is going to fail her class for being an ISU fan.

    Your "UNI game" idea seems like the most appropriate response. Don't get the principal involved. That will just teach your daughter the wrong lesson.

    While she didn't tell me why until yesterday, my daughter did get in the car on Friday after school and asked me if she was going to be sad on Monday.

    Pic of daughter's teacher? You know, to help determine the proper response and whatnot.

    When your daughter walks in the classroom on monday she should play the isu fight song on her phone or ipad or whatever she has available to do so.

    I've come across similar things with teachers in Des Moines.

    Ultimately, these type of hawk fans are best ignored...they simply aren't worth wasting you time or thought on.

    Thought of this, but don't know if those things are allowed in class.

    She's heavy set with a pleasant face

    I guess you could find out. It would be worth it.

    Re: Found out my daughter's 5th grade teacher played the Iowa fight song in class

    If you can get your daughter to go say that to her, I think it would be an appropriate solution to the problem. If the teacher has any sort of negative reaction to your daughter once she says it, then maybe I would consider saying something...
