Teacher correcting your spelling in a note.

Posted by   + Show Post

A friend of mine just put on FB that her sons teacher corrects her spelling and grammar in notes she sends, with a red pen, and sends them back in her sons backpack.
Would this make you mad?
She posted about it because she recieved a note from the teacher regarding a "ripe" in her sons coat.  And she is considering correcting it and sending it back lol.
Thoughts?

I'd have had a talk with the teacher the first time it happened. That level of disrespect is not tolerated here.

I proofread what I write, but we are ALL human and make mistakes. Also, if she's correcting the note, is she really paying attention to the message of the note?

The teacher should correct the spelling of that horrible name too.

That's sort of childish IMO. I think misspelling common words that an elementary aged kid spells correctly is pretty moronic , but I don't see how it's a teachers place to correct an adult.

I would! That would piss me off if a teacher corrected my notes and sent them back to me. I would take it to the principal.
