Seriously cannot stand my DD's teacher. AGHHHH! WTF!?! EDIT #2

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Sent an email to my DD's 1st grade teacher last night giving her a heads up for today letting her know that I would be checking her out today early at 1:30 because she has to be at the gym for a private lesson due to the fact she had to miss hers yesterday because her sisters were sick and I couldn't get her there. Mind you this kid doesn't miss school, is a top student, yada, yada, yada. 

My dd has a meet tomorrow morning and this is her last private before the meet, otherwise I wouldn't bother. Not a big deal right? 

I get this response... 

Dear Mrs. ....

I think this is ridiculous. She is not being checked out for an academic reason or a Dr's appt. There is no excuse for her to miss school for a private gymnastics lesson. If I had a say in this, it would be unexcused and she would not be able to make up the work she will miss. I assume this will not become a habit.


are you friggin kiddin me?!?!?!? It is only a half hour early! 

I have a response for this woman! Is starts with an F and ends with a YOU!!! 

Who on earth is she to talk to me like that? My kid never misses school, has never been in trouble a day in her life, is on the principals honor roll, WTF?!? I haven't liked this teacher from day one. She is great with the kids but is socially awkward  with adults. I don't even know what to say other than AGHHHHHHHH! WTF ! 


  • ****Edit******
  • My email response...
  • Dear Mrs...
  • Thank you for your kind informative words. I wasn't looking for opinions about my descision   to take ....out of school early or permission to do so. I was simply trying to give you the courtesy of prior notice in the event that you needed it. I am her mother and I will do what I deem necessary. I will not be needing any more input from you in reference to my parental choices. In the future I will simply go to the front office to sign her out without sending you notice. Have a lovely weekend.
  • Sincerely,
  • Mrs. ...

*****Edit #2 the Final KICKER!!!*******

So when I went to check my dd out I noticed the secretary said someone else's name when they called the classroom. I just assumed it was the new college intern they have who I haven't met yet this week. I just asked my 3rd grader who this Miss so and so is and she says oh, that's the new Music teacher intern. WHAAAAAAAT THE WHATTT! After ALLL this bs she was is in friggin Music class anyway!?! Meaning she was all packed and ready to go and NOT DOING ANY CLASS WORK!!! I want to punch this woman in the neck. At this point all I can do is laugh and get through the next four months. My daughter loves her. That's all that matters right? Oh.ma.Gawd!

Quoting TypeAndRun:

She has a point,  and I agree it should be an unexcused absence.  But IMO she handled it unprofessionally.

Not a very professional way of handling it, but I agree with her 100%!

I was just being honest and I know my daughter has talked to her non stop about the meet. I didn't see an issue with it. Ya know? Lol 

Quoting slw123:

You probably shouldn't have mentioned WHY she was being checked out.

When I take my kids out of school, I call the office not the teacher.  And I don't give an excuse either.  it's nobody's damn business if I want to take MY child out of school early for whatever reason.

I'd forward it to the principal and tell him to speak to her about appropriate parent/teacher behavior. Also, I wouldnt have bothered giving her a reason for the early dismissal-youre the parent, not her, it's none of her business. A simple, Im picking my kid up at one thirty, is all she deserves.

She definitely worded it unprofessionally, but she is correct. School comes before sports.

I agree with the teacher, but her response could have been worded differently
