According to Dana Trulock, one of the best ways to have an active, positive role in our children's education is to have an open line of communication with their teachers. In her workshops she helps parents learn how to prepare for and handle parent teacher conferences. Some of those tools:
1. Before the conference, talk to your child about any issues you are concerned about and ask for his/her input for the conference.
2. At the conference, develop measurable goals with the teacher and have a plan for follow up.
3. The best conferences are those in which both teachers and parents stay calm and try hard to work together for one purpose and one purpose only: to help your child succeed in school.
