A little bit late… but seeing as I don’t have Parent
Teacher Conferences for another 2 weeks, here are my tips:
Tip 1: Wear Layers!
If your school is anything like mine, they turn off the heat
once the students leave and refrigerate us for the evening. It starts out a
moderate temperature and just.gets.colder.
I have been known to shiver by the end of the night.
Also, some conferences make you sweat. You know the kind~ no
need for me to expound! It helps to remove a layer when you are warm. You may also choose to cover (brace yourself) pit stains or to ward off any icy stares. I wouldn't know about any of those things though...
Tip 2: Parent Homework
I do not enjoy surprises. Well, not at parent teacher
conferences anyway! I send home my No Surprise Conference Form for parents to
write down their questions, comments, or concerns. Previewing the conferences
this way gives me the chance to pre-problem solve, collect data, and gather
materials/ideas for the parents to support their scholar at home.
