Ah but isn't it better that the nice twin goes to school and the nasty one stays at home? Some parents have it the other way round and they tend not to believe the teacher who tells them their little darling is a monster.
From the other side as a teacher, I remember talking to a parent once about her straight "A" student and telling her how fantastic her dd was, how hard she worked, how much she contributed to the lesson etc and her mother wouldn't have it and wouldnt believe me.
Went to parents evening yesterday. My DD is - confident/shy - a pleasure to teach/disruptive - a clear achiever/struggling - always does extra homework/does the bare minimum I think we got a clear picture of her favourite subjects . (Oh ... and she has a detention today!)
Are you sure they know who she is? I am a secondary school teacher and can teach up to 90 kids in the same year group because I only see them once a week. Not surprisingly I often have to "hedge" a bit on parents evening, especially if its early in the year!
We had DS's yr 10 parents evening the other night. Funny how he seemed to forget certain teachers, and it was only when one of his friends mentioned the teacher we suddenly remembered that we hadn't seen him It turned out there was some course work that was running late
Ds was also trying to avoid his form teacher. She was trying to tell him off for moving desks from the normal seating arrangement ,as he was chatting too much. Unfortunately he started to grin at her (just as he does to me) she started laughing, then dh and I started laughing (we both felt really dreadful as it seemed like we were undermining her) and he got away with it.
It wasn't all bad - His maths teacher says he is a breath of fresh air who puts a smile on her face and is doing brilliantly and wants him for A level maths
trixie I did notice that the some of the teachers had sheets of photographs of all the pupils on their desk.
