    I had a parent complain to our principal that she was completely unaware that her child wasn’t reading her books and that I, as the teacher, should have said something instead of letting her child fail. To which I took all the notes and progress reports, the parent signed mind you, that stated her daughter wasn’t reading and in danger of failing… one note said, so should I be worried about these grades? SMH!!

    My partner & I had a parent have a conference with our principal because no one told her daughter happy birthday. She also complained (to our principal) that we didn’t allow water bottles to be brought to class…we all have water fountains in our rooms!

    I had a student ask me to take out her earrings because they hurt so I put them in a envelope and told her to put them in her backpack the next day the mom comes in and says you stole my daughters earrings the student says no she gave them to me our house is dirty thats why we can’t find them….. priceless

    Caught a particularly troublesome fourth grader cheating on a math test with the calculator on his phone hidden in his desk. Sent him to the counseling center. After class, meeting with the principal, he denied cheating. When I opened the phone with the problem still there, he said it was my fault because I wouldn’t help him do the problem on the test.

    I’m a band director. A clarinet student moved in from another school system but decided not to join the band at my school. At the end of the school year, she wanted to join so I gave her all the information about band camp – and she never showed.

    Two days after school started (August) she came to me and said she had decided not to be in band but had now changed her mind. I informed her that this was the second time she had decided not to be in band (at her previous school she had skipped the Christmas Concert, received an F, dismissed from cheerleading because of it, showed up at our school in January – I called to check). I told her I would think about it. Come see me in March.

    A couple of nights later, I missed a call from one of my band parents. The band expert and know-it-all. My wife made me return the call.

    The gist of the conversation was she had heard I had “thrown” this student out of band and wanted to complain. She had no connection with this student by the way. I informed her that I had not thrown the student out of band because to be in the band you must have played in the band and this student had never played a sound with us. After pausing a moment, she went on to the next complaint. Oh well.

    I had a parent tell me that she was unaware that her 8th grader had to pass my math class. He passed the State test that should be enough.

    I also love when parents tell me that they are busy with their two kids and work they don’t have time to check grades or homework. I wouldn’t understand. I have 5 kids and teaching is a full time job

    Had a furious dad tell me that he had 4 kids and it was impossible for him to check their math practice books( which were marked and graded regularly).. instead it was my job (which I wasnt doing properly!!!)that I should call him up after each hw/cw and update him ..
    I teach 4 classes with 20 kids (approx.) in each.
