Communication from Beginning to End


Found In: back to school, parent-teacher communication

The first week of school, I send home a fill-in-the-blank letter in English and Spanish for parents to write about their sons/daughters. They get a chance to tell me about what they want their children to accomplish in my class, and about their children

I ask the parents to tell me if they would be willing to volunteer in my room as a tutor or a guest speaker. They write down the best way we can communicate and the hours they are available. Parents love bragging about their children, and this letter opens the lines of communication for the rest of the year.

At the end of the year, I send a letter to parents when they examine their child

I keep those letters in what I call my HUG file. Whenever I think I am not making a difference, I just have to open that file and read a few letters, which encourage me to continue as a teacher and help me to recognize the trees in the forest.
