Texts to Trusting Relationships
I take a proactive approach to fostering collaboration with my students’ parents. I have found texting to be an amazing way to get connected with parents. After not having calls returned, I tried texting and got immediate responses.
Texting allows me to update parents on their child’s progress before waiting for an issue to arise. It’s quick and easy, and the constant flow of contact has done wonders for my relationships with parents. I’ve been able to move past the texts to actual conversations, face-to-face meetings, and trusting relationships.
