Jen , who teaches first grade and loves to scrapbook, asks...
If I am asking parents to respond to this: "My expectations for my child this year" would I use the word for or the word of? I think it's for, but I wasn't sure. Also, would it be the same for this question for a parent to respond to: "My expectations for my child's teacher this year". Thank you! Have a great day!
Anne answers...
Thanks for your question. The word 'expectations' can take either to or for after it. Personally, however, I prefer for.
