Just in Time for Parent-Teacher Conferences!

If you are like me, you will be getting ready for Parent-Teacher Conferences very soon!  SAY WHAT??!!!  I know, I know!  School seems to have just started like last week, but it's really that time again!  

And even though this is my 8th year of teaching, I still feel nervous and jitters when it comes to conferencing with parents.  I  DON'T KNOW WHY, but I  still do. :) Will I say all that I need to say? Did I explain the reading levels correctly?  Did my voice just crack again?!  Haha.  I know all these thoughts are silly, but once I get over all of that, I know that everything will be fine.

For the most part, I must admit that I really like conferencing with parents.  I always learn so much more about my students and their families through conferences.  And.....I enjoy having the opportunity to praise the kids and really get a chance to talk to the parents, get to know them on a personal level, and build a team of trust and support together that lasts the entire year.

So if you are about to embark upon the conferencing season :), feel free to download this conference form for your own class.

You'll be great!!! :)
