My daughter's teacher misspelled pretty (pritty) and behave (behaive). That's astonishing to me! These are basic words....am I right?

Sad isn't it? My son's 3rd grade teacher sent a note home to his friends, we counted six misspellings and at least that many grammar errors!

I agree with another poster here...The teacher may be an atrocious speller, but a terrific teacher...I saw this over and over with my colleagues..
I would suggest this:
1. Overlook it...
2. If it bothers you so much, go to the school secretary. Say politely, I see spelling errors on this note...May I get your help in this????
You will turn her off IIMMEDIATELY if you are critical...and will not get the results you desire.. With kindness, you could get the results you want by using this fact: You are also a woman...
Treat her as a fellow woman, suggest kindly and you will be happy, she will have learned in a positive way, and the other parents will benefit from your remaining calm..
