Just to clarify - the feeling fat and the conversation with parent were two completely separate issues! The parent did not comment on my weight at all, only about my 'teaching skills' as she put it.

That will happen at any school. People are cruel and hurtful out of selfishness and their own inability to parent. I guess you have to get used to it, which is really sad to say. It's more about that person than about you and your skills!
