4 KIDS NO DOG and a BABY

If your are going to grade my son harshly....

You may or may not know that I am a teacher by trade and degree. It has been awhile since I have been in my own classroom, unless you count teaching the 5 year old Sunday School class-which I am surprisingly liking the bunch and thought to myself for a brief moment that I think I might like going back to teach- for a very brief moment that is. I try hard not to complain about teachers because I know it is hard work. I so far have been really happy with the education my children are getting. I am for the most part content with the teachers my two have this year.



BUT I do have a big beef about G-Man's teacher and her grading and comments. I should be saving more of her comments on his homework and assignments but I have gotten so upset with them that I have thrown them in the trash. Maybe I am getting a little too emotional over some minor school work but when a teacher writes in bright red "Did you even study?" after we had spent many long painful hours trying to finish all the homework, oh a whole other post, I get a little frustrated to say the least.

Anyway so today this came home.

Now I understand circling the misspelled words especially when he had already written the words. I am not concerned about that one.



Yes he could have elaborated more on how the boy is nice, but I tell you what sometimes just being a nice friend is enough, isn't it??



But what gets me is her miss use of the word to...she should have written too...and I so wanted to take out my red pen and circle her misspelling of too and send it back to her. But I contained myself and just posted it here on my blog for all you to read.

Ooooo... I was going to point out the 'to' that should have been 'too' too... until I read more below. :)

Poor Greg - how does he like his teacher? Maybe you should get a big colorful marker and grade her work too...

I would be so annoyed!!!! (I'm sorry I would have gotten out my pen--you are a good person)

I hope things get better.

What grade is Gregory in? The teacher commented on the paper as if G was a college student instead of a 2nd grader! Puh-leaze lady... !!!

Haha....that 'to' was the first thing I noticed before I finished reading your post. Seriously, that is some hard core grading!

I had to laugh at that, I actually did send a note back to school with the mistakes the teacher made circled. She wrote back and said thanks for reading the note, I don’t get a reply back very often.

I'm sorry she's such a jerk. She sounds a little tough for 2nd grade teacher.

I would have!! Have you talked to her? That is way to hard fo the grade he is in and might descourage him from trying later on!
I love the whole fishing hook thing as I went through that this past weekend... we were of course fishing, but getting a hook out of clothes is tough!
I also loved G-mans... I drive my teacher crazy!! Classic!!

Okay... so I am not a teaher and have spelling issues myself, but only when I am typing fast!! LOL
