Nah, don't worry.

"If you have no critics you'll likely have no success." -Malcolm X

Or as they say in NYC, "fuhged about it."

Do what I do - Go where you feel appreciated/respected.

In my note I just leave the basics:

Student xyz needed help
Student xyz was unfortunately sent to the office (teachers tend to not like that one, lol)
Assignment xyz was completed
Assignment xyz wasn't working on the laptop

Always keep your note professional and avoid negativity, no matter how frustrating the day was.

If they have a problem with me I don't even care any more honestly. Wastes my time worrying if they "like" me or not. I don't go where I'm not wanted.

"Feedback" from the school is actually useless when you think about it. I mean, all I do is give them their assignments, help them when I can, and make sure everyone is safe and appropriate. A rating won't motivate me to do my job "better." What motivates me is knowing I've made a student feel better about themselves, not some superficial rating.

So with your gut instinct. If you feel unappreciated vote with your feet and take your business elsewhere.

Also remember we're judged heavily as outsiders. There will always be "haters" on occasion, even if we felt did a good job for the day.

Stay professional, even when the school isn't acting it.

Hope that helps.
