There is an elephant in the room! Teachers are all expected to participate in Parent Teacher Conferences, but are never given an opportunity to practice that or reflect on their practice. Well, SEEDLINGS took an email from an audience member, Bill Rakosnik, from Georgia, and put some questions on the NING and we had a tremendous thoughtful show for you all. Enjoy the podcast and the information.
Join SEEDLINGS as we speak with our guests Karen Abbott from Maine and Bill Rakosnik from Georgia, two veteran teachers who share with us how they prepare for parent teacher conferences, tips to make everyone feel comfortable, ideas on what to do when the conference goes south. The questions from the chat room and the suggestions are must haves for any teacher new to the field and veteran teachers looking to reflect on their practice.
