It’s that time of year again, parent-teacher conference season, when home and school join forces for the betterment of our students.
For some, parent-teacher conferences will be one of the few times you’ll speak with your child’s teacher this year, while for others this meeting marks the first of many conversations to come.
If you greet parent-conferences with a twinge of anxiety, know that you’re not alone. I’ve had years where I knew I wasn’t going to like what I was about to hear. I’ve had years where I’ve even cried a little. And this year, even with both of my kids finally on behavioral track, I’m nervous for what this week’s parent-teacher conferences will bring.
Nerves aside, it’s our job as parents to support our young learners with the help of their teachers.
