I told her I didn't appreciate her accusing my son of forgery and doing that in front of the class. I told her she should have handled in privately. I also told her I was concerned that she kept leaving them unsupervised.


Reads like a summary. Understanding your right to feel offended, are you sure there weren't any colorful or provoking words used in your original letter?

This reeks of an alter


The only alter was I edited out my name and her name, which seems like the mature, responsible thing to do. I could email the full message, and you could cross reference it to the school website.

There was certainly nothing to provoke that kind of response. But there will be on Monday.

I guess times have changed. When I was a child, I don't remember teachers having my parents phone number.

I mean, the school did, and if they were called it was from the principle or secretary from school, but I don't ever remember a teacher calling my parents. And I did some fricked up shite.

She probably sick of your kid wasting her time. I swear-most parents don't get it. Your kid dumped his water bottle on the floor while she was out of the room. I guarantee this wasn't his first offense. So then she accuses him of forgery. Probably not a stretch. Has he received detentions and such and just continues to get in trouble? Idk I've seen it happen so many times.

The problem is probably your kid an you refuse to see it.

(Just a guess of course)

They are 10! She shouldn't have called the kid out in class for forgery. The teacher should have contacted the parents in the first place instead of using a note. Then she complained when the parents sent a note back??? Just another example of how stupid some teachers are.

As a parent I can tell you I would have a HUGE problem with a teacher calling my child a liar in front of the entire class.

Tell me what you think.
The written word is the most forthright and genuine way of expressing yourself. The message here is that it's an important topic and you've taken the time to gather your thoughts and convey them through an irrefutable medium - pen to paper - especially in a highly charged and emotional environment. (The recipient can't say you said something when I didn't; the author can use it to substantiate their position). Willingness to go on the record implies your desire to reach a resolution. I say this without having the benefit of seeing the note. I'm gong on the assumption that the contents were not offensive or disrespectful.

The teacher is pissed off because she's being denied a learned tactic of control/manipulation through intimidation. It's a symptom of not being able to articulate what you want, so you just turn up the volume and back the other party into a corner until they capitulate.

Without having the benefit of seeing what the parent wrote, I'd venture to say the teacher royally screwed up by letting herself be recorded.

I'm not a teacher and I would have a problem with that also.
My main point is that it's probably his kid with the major behavior issues and he should probably focus on that. Teacher sounds like she's at the end of her rope.

I'd like to see that note too.

Teacher sends note home for parents to sign. No problem. Note comes back signed and teacher calls kid out in front of the class. If the kid didn't forge the name the teacher was way out of line...even if the 9-10 yr old did forge the note she should have taken confirmed it with the parents. Calling him a coward and insulting his writing skills are also out of line.

re: Updated: Voice mail message from 4th grade teacher
Absolutely. This is why my kids are at a private school.

I just hate to see parents let their kids get by with no accountability. Notice he didnt even go beyond "my kid threw a water bottle on the ground when the teacher was out..." i would have beat my kids arse for that. (In ASSUMING there was water everywhere) And if the teacher embarrassed him for forging a note id tell him "well this is a real world reprocussion for being a little shit-no one trusts you after you do stuff like that". but also i wonder why the class was left alone? that shouldnt have happened. The teacher is prob sick of both of them bc she's not getting any behavior help at home.

The OP did say the kid was punished. I can't see any reason for the teacher leaving such an unprofessional message. If the note was bad she should have let the principal deal with it.

I can only speak of the actions of the teacher.

Imagine if this was a white teacher and a black parent. The teacher would be racist for every action taken in this instance.

I went to private school and the nuns would pop us in the head

How do you know the parent or teacher was black or white?
