If parents are satisfied/happy with you, bottom line: does that mean you've done a good job? I ask, because I feel that I've done an average job (at best). I really do. (Not trying to humble-brag here either.) But my class parents took it upon themselves to write a letter to the district (I think to my P), relating their satisfaction and support of me this past year. (I work at a school where parents are very involved.) I'm just a bit confused. I don't think I'm being hard on myself (saying I did an average job). Am I putting too much stock into the parents gesture (writing a letter to the district)? Is the bottom line in teaching that your "customers" (i.e. parents) approve of you?
