19Slacking Off On Getting To Know The Teacher
Very Well Family adds that it is very important for the parents to make a concentrated effort to get to know the teacher well before they show up at parent-teacher conferences. Growing up in a family full of teachers, I can safely say that it irritates teachers to no end
when their students’ parents don’t bother to get to know them and don’t make any effort at a cordial relationship.
Many schools have open houses or other events, which are fantastic opportunities to volunteer and get to know all of the teachers that work there. Plus, events like that are also a good opportunity for a child to get some hands-on volunteer experience and make new friends while their parents chat a bit with their teachers.
