I'm not really sure how to feel about this. My principal called me into his office today to tell me that a parent was upset and "thought too much into" a letter I sent out a few days ago explaining that we have been having a lot of behavior problems and disruptions. I explained in this letter some of the behaviors I've been noticing and that we had a class meeting and outlined the new behavior plan to the parent. When I reread the letter with the principal I agreed that it did sound a little negative and I saw the parent's point of view of how she got upset about it. I now realize that I definitely should have reworded it and well not wrote it when I was hotheaded that particular day. Anyways, obviously this will be documented in my file that the parent called and complained about my letter but should I be worried that this will come back and haunt me in the future? I haven't had any observations yet and I'm a first year teacher but I feel now that every move I make I will be watched. My principal reassured me that I've been doing a great job so far just watch exactly how I phrase things in my letters but I still feel like this may affect me in the long run. Any thoughts?
