This Week: Parent Conferences
This week my students are dismissed at noon and I have parent teacher conferences. For the most part, I enjoy the meetings. Any time the adults in a child's life can get together and communicate about what will help the student in school is time well-spent.
For the more difficult ones I need to remember all families advocate for their children. They just may not approach us in the way we like at the times we like. All families want their students to be successful. We may define success in different ways. Behavior that looks like noncooperation may really be fear.
