Approach the teacher with a solution-seeking stance.
EP17: Communicating Concerns to the Teacher
Communicating concerns to the teacher can be nerve-racking. Parents sometimes avoid bringing things up because it’s uncomfortable. Every teacher wants every parent to feel good about their child’s learning experience. In this episode, we give parents a framework for communicating concerns. This solution-seeking conversation leaves both parent and teacher feeling clear and confident about next steps to support the learning.
TALKING TO THE TEACHER
Having a positive relationship with your child’s teacher sets them up for greater success. In this session, we look at reasons and ways to talk to the teacher. Use the resource guide and the videos to create your plan for talking to the teacher.
USE KEY WORDS TO TALK TO THE TEACHER
The words we choose when communicating with our child’s teacher matter. We want to send messages that are easily understood and specific to the reason for communicating. When we spend time thinking about our words before we say them, we build positive relationships between parents and teachers that help children succeed in school.
