Get the Most out of Your Parent-Teacher Meeting

With the school year now in full swing, children have had a chance to learn about what is planned for the year ahead and to learn about their new teachers. Now, it’s time for parents to do the same. To help you prepare for your parent/teacher meeting, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell has the following post.

It All Starts With a List

Too many parents attend their parent-teacher meeting without any preparation. Unfortunately, this leads to parents returning home after their meeting and remembering important items which they forgot to speak about and have now missed the prime opportunity to discuss. The best way to prevent this from happening to you is by preparing a list of everything you wish to speak with your child's teachers about. Start with any learning hurdles your child came up against last school year and how they overcame them. After that, move on to their strengths, and then consider items like their academic and career aspirations.

Prioritize

In the event that you don’t have sufficient time to speak about everything you have written down, it’s important that you are able to speak about the most important items first. With this in mind, prioritize the items on your list with the most crucial first. Once you have this list, take it with you to your meeting and feel free to tick off the items as you move down the page. Not only will this help to make your meeting productive but teachers will appreciate that you are utilizing their time well.

Speaking of Utilizing Their Time

If there are any concerns you have about how the school is run, the food in the cafeteria, or even the curriculum, which your child’s teacher can’t help with, don’t bring them up during your parent-teacher meeting. It can be easy for parents to spend much of their allotted time complaining about issues which the teacher simply can’t help with. Instead, discuss these issues with the appropriate person or body in your own time and only speak about your child and their lessons during your teacher meeting.
