I am a first year teacher. I taught the second semester of the last school year as an interim teacher. I teach in a low income, high poverty area. Last year it was next to impossible to contact the majority of my students parents. I tried calling, notes home, conferences. Nothing was getting through. I ended last year with never talking to a few of the parents. I do not want this year to have the same lack of communication. Is there anything I can do to change this?
