  • Hi, my name is (...), I am (...) mom, yesterday I called the school to request a meeting with the (...) to discus an issue with (...) English Teacher, it is very important to me as a parent to know what is going on with that teacher against my son, according to my son, there has been occasions that the teacher has been picking on (...) for no reason, for example last week while walking through the campus, something landed on her head and once again she accused (...) of being disrespectful without investigating who did it, and because of that she lower his grade from a B to a C.
    I called her directly to her voice mail and told her, if that was the reason of lowering his grade because of a misunderstanding, I will NOT tolerate that, this was last week and I have not yet heard from her, Honestly that is a bad sign coming from a teacher.
