At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. ~Jane D. Hull
No one knows my students better than their families, so I value working with parents and guardians as a team to meet each student’s individual needs.
Parents are a critical part of the educational team. They must be involved to ensure their child succeeds. It is my responsibility to encourage parents by inviting them into my classroom, providing tips and tools they can use to support academic achievement at home, and providing a continual stream of communication in the way that best meets each parents personal preference and lifestyle.
Families are always welcome to visit and volunteer in my classroom. I communicate with families via phone calls, notes, emails, text messages, a classroom website, conferences, and a weekly behavior/academic report. I also send home class work daily, so families can have meaningful discussions with their second graders about what they’ve been learning.
