Teachers Week: How To Build a Better Relationship With Your Child’s Teacher

Today kicks off Teacher’s week. School has been in full session for a month now and you should have crossed certain mile stones. If not, here are some simple ways to build a better relationship.

Check In.

Consider sending a check in note.  If your child has an IEP, give the teacher a copy of it.

Be respectful.

Arrive promptly for appointments and wrap things up within your allotted time. The teacher may have more parents and students waiting for her attention.

Say thank you.

Express appreciation for the big—and little—things the teacher does for your child. Cards, thank-you notes, even small gifts can go a long way toward building positive relationships with the teacher, school aides and other staff.
