We have a parent who has been trying to come in and observe her child and the classrooms all year. Administration has been adamant in telling her no, but at our staff meeting today we were told that the parent would be allowed to observe. Administration has set some strict guidelines and rules, but I am still feeling uneasy. There is a chance that this observation won't be happen in my class, but there is a possibility that it might. This is one parent that I feel very uneasy about having in my classroom. I feel like she is out to get me (and the other teachers in the school). At conferences I explained everything I do in class and was told it is not good enough. I do not need her sitting in the back of the room judging me and how I teach her child. I have a strong that her child will not perform as well as she usually does knowing her parent is in the room (part of the reason she wants to observe is because her child does not communicate with her at home). I have anxiety to begin with. Its the end of the school year and I don't need anymore. I have shown this parent how to access my online classroom. She has all that she needs at her fingertips and I don't see why she needs to come in. Am I wrong in feeling uncomfortable? Is this something I should bring up with Administration? I keep thinking about that, but feel like if I do the response will just be "oh well."
