Before the teacher interview

One of the best ways to keep the learning partnership strong is to attend parent-teacher interviews and meet with your child’s teacher, face to face. To make the most of those interviews, check out these tips, starting with pre-conference prep.

Before your conference with the teacher:

  • Make a list of any questions you want to ask.

  • Ask your child what they would like you to ask or tell their teacher.

  • Think about any specific information you will need to let the teacher know. This could include home or family changes the teacher needs to be sensitive to, health issues that affect your child, or recent family deaths or dramatic changes that have had an impact on your child.

  • Consider what special things you would like the teacher to know about your child.
