With Teacher of the Year: Pamela Padak
There aren’t many people outside of family who will spend as much time with your
child than their preschool teacher does. With that in mind, it pays to have a positive
relationship with the person who will be pouring into our children when they’re
not in our care.
Here are a few things you can do to bridge the gap between the home and classroom.
- Ask your child questions. The best way to engage your child is to ask
only give you insight into what happened when you were apart from each other,
but will also give you something to talk about with their teacher.
- Read what teachers send home. Teachers send emails so parents can keep
in the loop, but it will also allow you to have a more rich conversation with your
kid about their school life.
- Give teachers feedback. As parents, we’re quick to send feedback when something
email or text to your child’s teacher telling them how much you appreciate something
small they did this week in your child’s classroom.
For the sake of your child, make every effort to partner with their teacher, support
their efforts, and appreciate their investment. It can make more of a difference than you think.
