In many schools across the nation, students are nearing the end of their first semester. This means that grade reports will soon be due. In my experience, it is best to be proactive by meeting with the parents of students who are struggling the most, either academically or behaviorally. Parent-teacher conferences can produce great results if you as the teacher plan ahead and thoroughly prepare for them. With this in mind, I've created a list of tips for successful parent-teacher conferences. I'm happy for you to add on to the list by leaving your comments.
