Clip to ScrapBook #2

Mom should’ve called the office or sent a note w/ her child, period. Parents at the school where I most often sub are told that from the first days of school. It’s one thing if you’re notifying the teacher a few days in advance of a transportation change, but you cannot expect that the teacher will have enough time to read your email during the workday. What I mean is, don’t email to relay a same day change—call!


My take is that mom was ticked b/c she knew she should’ve confirmed w/ the office or w/ you, rather than relying on email. This is about her, not you. Relax over the weekend and try to put it behind you. Sounds like mom is a PITA.


BTW, welcome to the sub board! Not sure if you’re a sub or a full-time teacher, but I’m glad you moved from being a listener to a caller!
