Well, I survived my first parent/teacher conferences as a new 5-8 social studies teacher. I spent the entire time with parents without so much as time for the restroom. We started at 2:45 and my last parent left at 7:45. What a night!!
I really believe having a breakdown of student grades was the most beneficial thing I had ready for the night.
What have you found that really helps you make parent/teacher conferences go smoothly?
