Talk to teachers

In response to Debbie Morran’s recent letter to the editor, may I add my experience re: “talking to teachers.”

In response to Debbie Morran’s recent letter to the editor, may I add my experience re: “talking to teachers.”

When my eight children attended schools many moons ago, we made it our duty and privilege to talk to the teachers, not only on parent’s nights but at any time when we felt a need for that.

This started when I was told by a teacher that she appreciated the interest we showed in our child.

She indicated that it made for her a decisive difference whether a parent showed interest in the development of their child.  She said: “It should not make any difference for me whether a parent comes to a teacher to talk about their child,” but it does.

Over the years this had a positive influence for each of our children.  After all, it’s all about teamwork and understanding to further the progress of each child.

When all is said and done through “a wide variety of assessment tools and strategies,”  and “standardized testing,” it simply comes down for the parents to “Talk To Teachers.”
