How much is too much to email the teacher? DD is in first grade and I've emailed her probably 5 times since the beginning of school in September. She's very nice but I don't want to piss her off. They were all legit school things.

What are you emailing her about? Isn't that what parent teacher conferences are for?

That does not seem excessive.

I usually just send a note in my kids' bag. My son's teacher has called me and I have called her back several times... But he has an IEP so it's usually about that

I guess if it was for legit reasons and not just nit picking, it's fine.

I've never emailed teachers. I just talk to them at pick up if necessary.

Five times does not sound unreasonable at all. 

A parent should feel comfortable addressing any issues with their child's teacher. But it's HOW (how it's written....wording.....criticism not pertaining to the classroom or teaching....and treating the teacher like a personal employee) they do so that can make all the difference, kwim?

The teacher and you are partners and as your partner, she needs to be aware of your concerns and issues.

Parents night, behavior issue, question about something I sent in for a party. I feel like there was something else too.
