Grateful for Parent Interviews

Last week was hectic with trying to see all of my students’ parents. It was good, however, to touch base with the parents and discuss the progress of their child. Some conversations were more difficult than others but all ended on a positive note. I enjoyed seeing the face attached to the email address – so many of the children are bussed into the school and I never get the opportunity to see most parents face-to-face. In addition, the parents came to learn of the expectations I have for their child and what I feel the next steps should be to improve their child’s learning experience.
This week I am grateful for the opportunity I had to meet with parents. An evening and day were set aside for this and it was time well spent.
What have you been grateful for this week?

  1. You learn so much from meeting with the parents. I have several teacher friends and, sadly, they have so many parents who won’t even come into school for conferences…

    1. I think it depends on what grade you teach, and the community in which you work. There have been times when parents have been unable to come in because of work and I have had a telephone interview during my lunch period.
