SusanB- The start of school is a crazy time of year for teacher, students and parents so maybe the teacher just messed up. It happens. If there are issues on the bus I would talk to the principal and the school counselor as most schools have a no bullying policy. If you feel like the teacher does not like your child I would suggest giving it time and don't pass along your negative feelings to your daughter. As for the "garbage" part, my guess is that it is just part of their chore rotation. Chores are a great way to teach responsibility and build self esteem.
