School is back in session! As we settle into to cooler weather and homework routines, we turn our collective attention toward our child’s teacher.
Is she good? Is she nice? Do we like her? Do we not? God forbid we feel our kid has been assigned to a bad teacher.
Listen, I’ve written about not liking my kid’s teacher, only to swallow my pride with a follow-up post as to why that very teacher was the best one for our family.
While not every “bad teacher” story can have a happy ending, it’s an educational inevitability that sooner or later your child will be assigned to a teacher with whom there’s no love connection.
So what’s a parent to do? Storm into the principal’s office? Demand a classroom change? Hold up!
I consulted teachers and school administrators on the best ways to handle parent-teacher conflict, check out our handy dandy guide on what to do and when – after the jump!
Introduce yourself early and initiate open lines of communication with your child’s teacher. Providing your contact information and inquiring about preferred methods of communication makes your child’s teacher aware of your personal commitment to the parent-teacher partnership.
