My son rec'd his letter last week re: the homeroom he is being placed in starting next week. My neighbor's daughter had this teacher last year and had little good to say about her. Our teacher's for elem. school usually send home books to be signed daily/weekly & she doesn't nor does she keep up with the kids' assignments, etc. Besides this communication issue, she is said (by multiple people) to have lost papers/misgrade tests only to have the student stay in from recess to do or say that yes she couldn't find it but remembers she did well so would give an appropriate grade. ???? I've mentioned this to the principal, who is a very stubborn person who has pretty much the mentality, this is my school & I'll run it as I see fit attitude. Besides having the guidance counselor saying she will check in on him, anything else you recommend? He is smart & shy and I am afraid he will become very withdrawn in this class. TIA for your help!
