A mom called my principal today to say she "DID NOT WANT HER DAUGHTER IN MY CLASS."
I have a lot of feelings about this
Hurt. Embarrassed. Annoyed. Mad. Disappointed. Shocked. Surprised.
But most of all, my feelings are hurt.
I said they weren't.
But they are.
I'd like to say I can let this roll off my shoulders.
But I can't.
I'd like to say I won't hold a grudge when I see her.
But I might.
I'd like to say it doesn't matter.
But it does.
I can't please everyone.
But I'd like to.
I remind myself that I am a good teacher and this is not a big deal.
But the reality is ...
someone thinks I'm not good enough for their child.
And quite frankly ...
