Tips for a Great Parent-Teacher Conference

When it comes time to talk, will you be ready? These six tips could make the difference between an OK meeting and a great conference!

  • If you feel there is a problem, schedule a meeting.
  • Be on time!
  • Take notes at the conference.
  • If something isn't clear, ask the teacher to explain it.
  • Try not to get angry or say something you might regret.
  • Do not bring babies or small children to the conference. Because time is so short, no time should be spent chasing after a younger child or tending to a baby.
