Last night and this morning were parent-teacher conferences. I really enjoy having at least some time to talk with parents, even if slots are only 5 minutes long. I’ve decided that conferences are more effective if they are parent-teacher-student conferences. I need to encourage students to attend conferences next year.
I hold my conferences in the Physics Prep Room. It is the storage area between rooms 144 and 142. Many parents looking for my colleague in room 143 understandably stop, and I direct them around the corner and into the stairwell. I have no understanding of why several classrooms are numbered the way they are!
