I sent this to my daughters teacher last night...

Today as I was looking through Paetyn's Monday folder, I looked at her spelling test and noticed she misspelled one word, but still got 100%, that is not 100% that is 98%, please in the future if you could give an accurate grade, that would be appreciated.
Also, I noticed you had misspelled her name, although it is not the traditional spelling of "Peyton", I do expect her name to be spelled correctly, on everything, if you could please in the future also pay attention to that, I would also appreciate it.
The spelling of her name is not a big deal, but I would appreciate a little more attention paid on your part as her teacher, that her name is spelled correctly.

Her teacher called me today, over the phone I could hear the hostility in her tone.
She told me the spelling test, the one she got wrong was extra credit, considering she only missed one, and there are two extra credit answers the grade is still inaccurate. She also said the spelling error of my daughters name, was done by a parent helper, I have seen my daughters, teachers handwriting enough to know this is bullshit, it was her, who spelled it incorrectly.

Now, don't get me wrong, I expected spelling errors to happen when I chose the spelling of my daughters name, but not from a teacher, as it is part of their job to spell children's names correctly.

I explained to her on the phone, that I would appreciate if she would just pay a bit more attention to details, regardless how small. I don't want my daughter to think she is spelling her name wrong, because her teacher is, kwim?

I have multiple issues with my daughters teacher at the moment, she has yet to respond to any of the emails I have sent about the bullying my daughter deals with daily, I have sent her one last email, today, informing her if she continues to ignore the issue, I will be setting up a meeting with the principal. She also often marks things incorrect when they are not. She is also a good friend of my MIL, and discusses my daughter with MIL, which is also irritating because if I wanted MIL to know all about my daughters school experiences I would tell her myself.

She is also very unprofessional in what she shares with her students. I understand children ask questions, but she should be able to answer them without it becoming very personal. Like when she is going to have a sub, ans like students do, they ask why? She can say because she has a doctors appt, and leave it at that. Or something of that nature. They don't need to know you are taking your 2 year old granddaughter to a doctors appt, or that your mother had cancer, or that she died and you have to go to her funeral, this is too much sharing, IMO...and very unprofessional!

RANT OVER!

Be that as it may, but discussing my child with anybody other than my husband or myself is too much! Misspelling a child's name is not tolerable. And not grading things accordingly is laziness! Along with a slew of other issues!

You sound like a freak. And that's what you get when you spell your daughter's name like that. Were you 15 when you had her?

Nope, I was 19, and I chose the spelling I did, because it was more feminine!

 I'm sure this teacher CAN'T WAIT until the end of the year so she doesn't have to deal with this nonesense anymore from you.
