Soon I will be entering the field of teaching Speical Ed. I wonder how I can find enough time in a day to build trusting relationships with the parents and the students. By having a good relationship with the parents, I know that my daily tasks in the classroom should be a little easier. One goal that I have is to make sure that the students receive all the resources that are available to them. Therefore, I must establish a positive relationship with the parents. One way to do this is to learn about the students’ culture. Next, when things are going well with the student, in the classroom, I will let the parents know. This will help reinforce a positive line of commutations. Also this will show the parents that there is a real concern for the well being of the students. Finally, I will invite the parents to the school to discuss any cares or concerns that they may have. By expressing to them that open commutation is the key for their child’s success.  I know that there are so many parts to a good parent-teacher relationship so if anyone would like to share with me more ideas please do thanks.
