Just got home from a really long day, so don’t expect much. Tonight was the first time we’ve tried student-led conferences. As a parent with a student and a teacher, I have to say that I really like them. They really enabled us to have a very meaningful chat with our sixth grader and he had to show us evidence of what he did and what he was thinking with some of his work. Like many kids his age, rushing through work was a theme. But he was very mature with how he talked about the material along with being upfront and honest.
As a teacher, I think our team saw 23 or 24 students tonight. So the turnout was pretty solid.
Until Next Time,
