My husband says I'm being a perfectionist because I check my 2nd graders' homework and I make her correct her sloppy handwriting. She has nice writing when she takes her time, but like most kids she rushes through so she can get it over with. Also, there's an incorrect answer I ask her to read the question and her answer again, I don't say "this is wrong, try again." I'm not asking her for pefection, I just want her to do her best. Am I being too picky?

Not at all!!! You are doing a great job. I remember when I was in third grade we were learning cursive handwriting. I missed a word on my spelling test because of my hand writing. I missed the word "book", my "B" looked like an "L" so I wrote "look" instead. I even wrote the word correctly in print next to the cursive word. He still counted it wrong.....BOO! lol
The Moral of My Story:
If my mom had helped me with my handwriting I might not have wrote "look".....lol

My DD's teacher asks that we check over their homework, to help them correct what is wrong & to make sure it's legible. It's in bright letters on the weekly homework sheet. I think teachers would certainly appreciate what you're doing.
