Teacher Children Well

When it comes to their education, you want to know that your children are in good hands. That means having an open line of communication with his or her teacher that goes beyond the annual parent-teacher conference. We're not saying you should assume the role of a helicopter parent, hovering over your child and teacher. The key is to find a happy medium between being overbearing and underwhelming in your child's education.

For starters, use the open house as an opportunity to meet your child's teacher face to face. Keep any and all contact information and resources provided by the teacher. Use volunteer opportunities as another way to become a familiar face to your child's instructor. Attend conferences to monitor your child's progress throughout the year. If you have concerns about your child's performance, call or email the teacher before or after school hours. You can also send short notes to the teacher through your child.
