My 11 year old daughter started middle school this year and for the most part has not had problems. The only real problem has been with her math class/teacher. Prissy doesn't really get along with her and after having met her, I can understand why. I thought of moving her to another class, but decided against it. In life she will run into people she doesn't like and will have to find a way to keep the peace with them. But that's not so much the problem .... The thing is Prissy does her homework/class work but very often does not recieve credit. The teacher insits the work is not turned in and Prissy insits that it is. When I visited the teacher she said there was no way to prove Prissy is telling the truth and late work is not accepted. So I went to the school counselor, who spoke to my daughter, gave her a homework contract forone week and basically did nothing. Prissy recieved an "F" last semester and this semester I'm determined to not let that happen again. I thought of e-mailing the teacher quite often to confirm homework/assignments. Do you think this would be ok?
Honestly, if my child were dealing with someone like this I would start scanning their homework each night and emailing it to the teacher and the principal. It sounds like this teacher just wants to be a pain for your child and I don't put up with that.

This teacher could change your DD's whole outlook on education for the worse and I'd hate to see that happen, She should not be teaching IMO. I would change her teacher in this instance. I however like your attitude by not being over protective, but this to me is an exception.
