How to Transform Your Parent Communication as a Teacher Right Now

Parent Communication can be hard as a New Teacher.

In my first year of teaching, I was so terrified that I was going to upset a parent, that I would shake when I talked to them. 

I would dread phone calls and I was constantly worried that someone was going to come in upset.

After several years, however, I have learned the dos and don’ts of Parent Communication. Now, I don’t dread talking to my parents. Actually, I enjoy it.

What’s better is that even my parents are more excited to reach out. And when they do have a problem, they address it as a “let’s work together” attitude.

Now, I am not afraid of communicating with my families and messing up. And that is all thanks to the climate and environment I created for my families.

So if you are a new teacher or just need some practical tips that you can use right now to transform your Parent Communication, then this post is for you.
