What Teachers Want Parents to Know

Parents, it’s your turn! Teachers want you to know that they are working hard and are doing their best. They also want you to be supportive of their work.

Teachers want you to be supportive of their work.

One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to be supportive of your child’s teachers. Teachers work hard to provide a quality education for your child and they appreciate your support.

Here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to supporting your child’s teachers:

1. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Teachers want to know what you think about your child’s progress and how you are able to support them.

2. Be flexible. Teachers want to be able to adapt their lesson plans to fit each student’s individual needs. Be willing to be flexible and allow them to do the same for you.

3. Don’t be a distraction. Teachers want to be able to focus on teaching, not on dealing with disruptive parents. Keep your conversations with your child brief and to the point.

4. Be supportive of their decisions. Teachers are professionals and they make decisions based on what is best for your child. Don’t try to interfere or second-guess their decisions.

5. Thank them. Teachers work hard every day and it is important to show them appreciation. Saying “thank you” can go a long way.

By being supportive of your child’s teachers, you are helping them to have a successful education.
