I Didn't Want You Around

It's that time again.  Oh, yes.  Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences.

Here's my approach:

  1. Celebrate the many, many successes.  These kids are alive, functioning, taking in some knowledge, producing some work, and not having to walk in lines in the hallways.  That's a major plus for sixth grade.  They love saying good-bye to Line Basics.
  2. Tell them how much I care about them and appreciate them.  Compliment the parents on their excellent work raising these adorable, alive, functional children.  
  3. Set a couple of manageable goals.  Can we use tutorial better?  Can we manage our emotions?  Can we try to make a new friend?  I think we can agree to try!
I'm on it.  Everyone can breathe easy.
