Re: Any Teachers here?

During the holidays, I wrote a note to the principal of DS's school praising his teacher. I wrote about specific instances where she had gone out of her way for the kids, things that she was doing in her classroom that my child enjoyed, etc. etc. The principal replied thanking me for letting her know about my satisfaction and how refreshing it was to hear from a parent that was happy with their experience rather than the other way around.

The principal did forward my letter to my child's teacher and when I saw her next she gave me the biggest hug and thanked me for the kind words.

So not only did the teacher get feedback from me, but now her boss knows that she is doing a great job in the classroom.

I can imagine a gesture like that would go a long way with your child's teacher.
