Meaningful Relationships with Parents

Here is a great and timely article from Edutopia's New Teacher Academy. How to work with parents will be the focus of our exciting March 24th Lesley University New Teacher Community event as well.

Our March event is called Meaningful Conversations: Talking to Parents and Caregivers About Their Children.

Come join us and listen and learn from experienced teachers and administrators about ways to gracefully have those delicate and difficult conversations that all teachers have with parents. We'll cover parent-teacher conferences, open houses, progress reports as well as sustaining parent involvement and connection.

Look for your invitation and remember to RSVP.

She is currently teaching fourth grade in New Orleans, Louisiana.
