Let’s hope and pray your parent conferences aren’t nearly as awkward as the flick with Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro. 🙂 As teachers prepare for parent meetings in the fall, perhaps these two resources will be helpful to you:
- Instructional Support Teacher Anne Keo shares in a recent blogpost how to give and get the most out of parent conferences.
- I’m sharing access to a presentation I prepared for new teachers called“‘Mom and Pop’ Talk: Parent Conferences Demystified” which has tips on preparing, communication, legal do’s and don’ts, and links to resources (available to GCPS teachers by clicking on the links. Others, please just email/comment and request permission).
Please email or comment if you have other specific questions or concerns you’d like to see addressed on the topic. I’d love to be of help!
