A couple things, actually.
I always begin my parent/teacher conferences by asking how the student is doing in my class. I like to get a parent's perspective to see if we're on the same page... :). One dad today told me, "Well, I don't know what you did to my son, but all of a sudden, he loves to read." Yay!!! I love to hear that!!!
Today was also the first day that I had another person helping me in the classroom. And I didn't have just one, I had two! Wow, they did so much grading for me and so many "administrative" duties that I am just amazed. Thanks Miss Roark and Mrs. Bredbenner!!! Your help was so appreciated!
That's all for now.
