Parent-teacher conferences can be an overwhelming time for parents. What do I need to be prepared for? What will my child’s teacher say about them? And one of the most daunting questions- what questions do I ask? Here is a list of thought-provoking questions you can bring to parent-teacher conferences with you to get the most out of your experience.
How is his/her/their social development?
Are there any concerns I should have?
What can I do to support my child’s academics at home?
What can I do to support you as my child’s teacher?
Is your classroom in need of any school supplies?
What is something my child did really well this week/month?
What type of workload can we expect from this class moving forward?
What strengths and weaknesses does my child have in your classroom?
And then of course questions specifically for you:
What is the best way to get in contact with you if I need anything?
Can I talk to you about this concern I have?
Do you know about this situation my son/daughter has going on at home?
Is there anything else going on in the classroom that I need to know about?
