First of all hello everyone , here is where I need your help. I have a 5th grader, and yesturday I had a conference with her teacher .My daughter's grades have declined , from being an A+ student to now being a C. ( I had been warned this teacher was not a very good one), anyways when I was telling the teacher I didnt understand why her grades had declined , out of no where she asked us "do you speak a second language at home?'' This is where I felt weird , would this same question have applied if another student had the same grade as my daughter , but with a different last name ?? I dumbly did not ask her 'why that question " I had never been asked that before . I am thinking I should request another conference and have her explain why she asked me that, this is where I need your advice. Am I making this a big deal? what would have you done if this was your case?
