This parent would get a big ignore from me. Since she took it to the principal, obviously the principal is the one she wants to deal with. I'd consider that a gift and consider that I've been set...

I think it doesn’t matter what anyone’s opinion is of how Class Dojo is implemented, except the teacher who is using it. It’s she or he who has to manage the behavior of 25 or do kids and find time...

You might want to let her know, as a courtesy, that out in corporate America that "Pregnancy brain" comment could get her and her company a nice lawsuit filed against them.

I think it would be rude to ask any detailed questions. If it comes up accidentally just say, “I have called it off and don’t wish to discuss it further.”

I’m sorry this has happened.

I would not go to the teacher who supposedly said this. If she dint she'll be pissed that you even entertained the idea. And if she did say to, surely she will deny it.
