Parent Contacts Book

It is important to develop a good rapport between the parents and the teacher. When the parents and the teacher are working together, you can both work towards achieving the same goals for the child. In order to establish a good rapport, the foundation must begin at the start of the school year. If you gain the parents’ respect and trust, the entire year will run more smoothly and they will be likely to support your classroom management plan and discipline concerns.
