It is no secret that I believe time in the classroom is a teacher’s greatest asset. As a first year teacher, I was not at all prepared for the fine art of parent-teacher communication. I thought I was. After all, I had a beautiful website that I spent hours creating. I had all of my lesson plans posted and attempted to get each of my rubrics online for my students and parents to access.
I was sure I was ready. I was proactive in communication. Take one look at my website and you would know that I care…right….? Right?!
