Dear Precious Parent,

The rules actually do apply to you as well.

Sincerely,
Ms. Fed up

You are acting like you are on crack.

Dear ms Fed Up,

You are right! I should have realized that I'm not the only person in the world! I have come to my senses. Thank you for teaching me.

From,
Precious Parent

No. This job isn't like being a babysitter who gets paid.
Until you step into my shoes for at least one month, you have zero right to judge me or assume you know how I could better do my job.

He doesn't act like this at home.

Because you are either A) Never home to see him, B) Not interacting with him when you ARE there, or C) Never asking him to do anything he doesn't want to do.

@Miss Agnes that is one of my favorites. I generally say in the most respectful voice I ask them to reflect on how his actions might change at home if there were 20+ kids in 1000sq. ft. of their home all trying to do homework at the same time. That usually at least gets them to shut up.

In my work AND while out & about in public, there's too many to list here, ha!

One of my main comments would be, "Stop acting like you own the place by imposing on others and move out of the way from standing smack in the middle of the street/aisle/pathway, etc. with your cell phone where others are driving/walking, etc.!!!"

Dear Concerned Parent,

You know when you said "I don't want my child be THAT child who everyone dreads..." TOO LATE.

Dear Construction worker,

I understand that you have work to do in the classrooms and have to paint/patch up certain walls, but does it really put a damper in your time if you move/put all my stuff BACK after you do the work you need to do? Is that so hard to do? Heck, I'll even take a neat pile of stuff or at least a damn apology note telling me why my classroom is a mess and when you plan on making it a mess again. kthxbye

Sincerely,
Mrs. Annoyed 7-month pregnant teacher

Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! It's the last one Miss Anges. I wish I could say I could get him to be an angel too, by expecting absolutely nothing of him.

Dear Casual Acquaintance,
I know we've known each other over the years because I taught your oldest daughter and your younger daughter and my DD were in classes together. I am super duper glad I am not your DS's teacher.
I won't be surprised to see him on the news in 7 or years and not for a good reason. The best I can hope for is that he'll be living in your basement at 50.

Dear Parent,

I hope you are enjoying your vacation. It would have been great if you had let me know you were taking one. Your child who is always as slow as molasses has missed a whole week now. We are at the end of a grading period and a testing window. Would it have killed you to send a text and say you were going to be gone for a whole week? I happen to care about your child and was concerned he might be sick.

Your over qualified babysitter

Dear Parent,

It was great that you came to eat lunch with your child today but your choice of a lunchable with a candy bar, a large 16 oz soda and a pint of ice cream might not be the best choice for a 2nd grader.

Dear Parent:

Your child has a disability. No, they're not going to 'grow out of it.'

It doesn't have to ruin their life ... but if you don't accept the situation and start helping them learn to work with it and adapt?

It will.

There's no need to ask me a third day in a row whether I've made a mistake with my attendance taking. I marked your child absent because your child didn't show up to class today nor the past two days. No, I don't know where your child went and frankly, I don't care. Being required to teach, I don't have time to search the hallways and make sure your child comes into my classroom. I hear that you drop your child off each morning and watch your child enter the building before you drive off. Maybe you should watch the entrances/exits on the opposite side of the building since I believe your child walks right out the door.
And I'm too busy in the morning preparing to begin teaching. That means I don't have time to make sure your child stays in the building. This is a school. It's not a jail nor a zoo where we adults are required to keep inmates/animals inside the walls.
Stop leaving me voice mails where you ask if I've made "yet another mistake with taking attendance".

If you are going to ask me for extra credit work for you kid who didn't do the work in the first place, or clearly didn't study, or failed an OPEN BOOK TEST, please make sure he actually DOES the extra credit work after I even extended the time to let him turn it in!!

Dear Parent,

I would love to send home for spring break a "packet of anything that will help Child pass the state testing". Enclosed are directions for building a time machine so he can travel back to September and re-do the last 6 months, only with more effort and f*cks being given on his part.

Sincerely,
Mrs. "I'm Not Staying After Contract Hours to Make a Packet" Curliegirl

Do you realize that YOUR CHILD is "running the show" at your house? Why are you not being the parent?

Dear Ridiculous Parent:

No, you can't walk your first grader to school every day IN A STROLLER and then complain to the principal that other kids are calling your precious peanut a baby.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Seen and Heard It All

Dear Veteran Teacher,
Why yes, I would love to have a loud conversation in front of the whole class. Oh! You wanted to discuss private student information? Of course! Why didn't I think of that?! I'm sure they wouldn't mind being talked about in front of all their peers. And don't worry about me having to repeat the same thing three times, I don't mind at all. It isn't like you don't have access to everything I'm telling you.

Oh good! You wanted to continue the conversation by questioning my decisions and giving me your opinion on how everything I'm doing is wrong. Thank you so much! You've made my day! I can now go off and contemplate everything I've done for the last two years.

Yours Truly,
Ms. Knows What She's Doing
