  1. I definitely agree with sitting next to the parent or across a table. For my recent conferences, I sat on the same side of my table with the parents to go over paperwork. I'm not superior and don't think I am. I like parents to know that we are all on the same team.
    One thing I've learned…have something available for the little ones (preschool age) that may come along with their parents.

    1. What a great tip! I remember one year I had a mom come in with 3 little ones under the age of 5, and I let them take a bucket of blocks off of my math manipulatives shelves…. by the time we were done, they had emptied my pattern blocks, money bucket, and unifix cubes. What am mess! 🙂

  2. At first i was sitting on a fence, but now I know for sure: parebts-teacher contact dos improve the studying process. Here're some thoughts about this:

  4. This is ALL good! I recently had to step into the roll of teacher as the teacher I have been working with has cancer. I've always been the teacher's aide and have occasionally taught, when the teacher was gone. I've never done conferences so it was so good to read your post. My conferences will be coming up at the end of this month.

  5. Excellent reminders. We have conferences Thursday night, and it is so important to run the conference as if you were the parent. We have to be teammates and parents need to leave feeling informed, respected, and like an equal member of the team.

  6. Thank you for this post! I am a second year teacher and we have conferences on Monday. I like the suggestion to ask the parents if they have any concerns first. I hadn't thought of that.
