Parent Conferences

parent teacher conferences
Planning for, preparing, and conducting parent conferences can be overwhelming and stressful. Teachers often have many questions and concerns about parent conferences such as:

  • What should I talk about?
  • How do I schedule parent conferences?
  • How do I prepare for parent conferences?
  • What about difficult students?
  • How do I tell parents their child is struggling?

Based on my experience and the questions above I have created a step-by-step process that will help you conduct successful parent conferences.

The Parent Conference Packet will help you:

  • Schedule parent conferences by providing you with example notes and e-mails to use in various situations
  • Save time by providing the tools necessary to schedule, plan, and conduct successful parent conferences
  • Communicate with parents in a professional, confident manner that will put them at ease
  • Discuss difficult topics with parents such as poor grades or low assessment scores
