PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE

It is extremely important to have good working relationships between parents and teachers. A parent-teacher conference was a short meeting or conference between the parents and teachers of students to discuss children's progress at school and find solutions to academic or behavioral problems. As a teacher of Sunbeam Christian School of Panabo I have conducted this kind of conference with the guardian of Joshua Miguel D. Ramirez and Christine S. Barnayja. Parent-teacher conferences supplement the information conveyed by report cards by focusing on students' specific strengths and weaknesses in individual subjects and generalizing the level of inter-curricular skills and competences. Joshua Miguel D. Ramirez was one of the honor pupils in my class, but I observed during the 3rd Grading Period he got lower grades in his exam than the usual, that was the reason I call the attention of his guidance for him to be guided for the next examination. Christine S. Barnayja,

This conference plays a big role to us teachers and to our stakeholder, the parent, not just for simply informs the progress of their child but also the good relationship that we can build towards the parent.

A video example can be seen here. In the United States, many elementary schools will shorten the school day by 2–3 hours (often for an entire week) in mid fall to allow extra time for teachers to give these conferences students' parents and teachers. The interview is a chance for parents to meet their child's teachers and review any issues or concerns the parents or teachers may have with child/student's performance.

A parent is really the child's first teacher and critical to student success is the involvement of the parent.

It is extremely important to keep the doors open and welcome parents to share in the educational goals of the student. How can you ensure that you have a productive Parent Teacher Meeting/Conference?
