  • Before you ask for a teacher change, talk to the teacher

    You come to Meet the Teacher Night and stare at the list of classes. Really, that teacher? You so did not want Mrs. Smith for your child. Or you look at that list and realize your son’s bully from last year has ended up in his class. Or maybe it’s that every day these first few weeks, your daughter has had something bad to say about Mrs. Jones and what happened in class that day.
