How to have a good parent teacher conference
Ms. Thomas, I was made aware that my daughter is not happy in your class. She complains that she gets "yelled at" all the time. What is the meaning of this?
Hello Mrs. Smith, Thank you so much for taking the time to come! I appreciate it and understand your concerns. Let me first begin with the fact that you're daughter is a wonderful student!
If she's so wonderful for you, why is she coming home and telling me the complete opposite?! She never brings home any school work and says that you never assign any!
The students in my classroom do get homework assigned every so often. Looking at your daughter's grades, which you can see here, it looks like she's missing 5 assignments. I do ask her if they are complete, and she tells me that she has left them at home. I often find myself having to keep her on task. Your daughter loves to chat, which is fine, but needs to be done at appropriate times.
If your daughter stays on task, she would have less homework to do at home. I know students don't like taking school work home. A goal I would like to set for her is to stay on task, and complete assignments in class. Do you think you can help me out with that? Maybe at home, ask to see her daily planner. We write all our assignments in there. You're daughter brings joy to my class, and I want to see her succeed!
Wow! I never knew this! She never showed me her planner before. Thank you so much for letting me know. I would gladly help, and keep her on track by checking her planner every evening. I hope to see improvement. Thank you, and I appreciate your e-mails. I see that you are concerned as well, and am happy that you are working to help her out!
