With the end of the school year not too far off, it’s important to remember that parent-teacher conferences can play a very important role in a student’s development and academic success.  Unfortunately, this relationship is often overlooked, ignored or undervalued.

The truth is, teachers and parents often see different aspects of a student’s personality. Only by maintaining an open dialogue and comparing notes on the student’s achievements or behavior can these perspectives be useful for both.

When parents take advantage of parent-teacher conferences and other opportunities to speak with teachers, it often allows parents to learn of any challenges — academic or otherwise — their child might be having.

By the same token, parents can let the teacher know of any special circumstances at home that might have some bearing on the student’s performance or behavior.

Let’s face it; kids today face a lot of pressure in school.  When parents and teachers work together to try and provide the best environment for learning, the child stands to benefit the most.
