How Do You Feel About Your Child’s School?
In learning more about how we can create genuine caring connections between parents and teachers, it would be so helpful to gain your perspectives. Please take a look at the questions below and respond with a word or two or consider all six of the questions. Though we know parents’ involvement in their children’s education is critical to academic performance, time is limited and educators and parents want to make good choices related to how they connect. Any response you can provide to the following questions would be very much appreciated!
1. How would you describe how you feel about your child’s teacher?
2. How would you describe how you feel about the school where your child/children attend?
3. What kind of relationship do you and your child’s teacher have?
4. Do you feel that your child’s needs (learning, physical, social, emotional) are being met at school? If not, what is not being met? And are you comfortable bringing this up with his/her teacher?
5. How are you involved in your child’s education? Is it what you want and would hope for or would you prefer more, less, or a different kind of involvement? If so, what kind?
6. What’s the one thing the teacher or school could do to help you feel more connected and like a true partner with them focused on your child’s education?
