This morning a student of mine came up to me and said, "My dad says that I learn nothing here at school." I am so hurt by this comment. I'm a first year teacher and feel like I'm failing my students. This parent is also one of the most least involved, so now I'm worried that if he feels this way then I wonder how many other parents think the same! I talked to my principal and he told me that he has not received any complaints. I called the parent and left a message telling him I would like to discuss any concerns he has regarding the curriculum. I feel so bad. I want my students and parents to feel like they are getting a lot out of my classroom.
