Adults can be pretty stupid sometimes. Sorry that you had to go through that. It would be so easy if this world learn to just accept instead of constantly labeling everything and everybody. A big hug for you and your courageous heart. Keep doing your best as a teacher. One day, one adult will turn to you and say "Thanks Mrs. Weekley, for teaching me become the best that I can be." Hugs.
it is sad to have situations like this; kids that age are just so curious about different things and have imaginations they are just beginning to explore. To "stiffle" it like some parents might want to doesn't make any sense to me at allbetty
