DS is starting kindergarten in the fall. Dh's aunt is a teacher at the school he'll be going to. She's warned us that one of the k teachers is excellent and that the other is....not! This has been relayed from dh so I haven't asked for details on why the one teacher wouldn't be as good. She told us that parents who write a letter to the school can request a teacher, but of course you need to have a valid reason for the request. I can't for the life of me think of a reason that doesn't sound dumb to actually write a letter. It's not like I can just say "so and so says mrs. M is not a good teacher"! Lol. So, have any of you ever requested a certain teacher? In my situation would you do so (assuming I get more details from dh's aunt)? I obviously know I can't control what teachers DS gets for the rest of his life! It's just nagging at me after dh's aunt brought it up!
