If you need to chat with your child's teacher, please don't just show up and expect to speak with them during the school day. Email or call and schedule a time. I'm not going to neglect my class and stop what I'm doing to talk with you about little Johnny.
I got called from the office today- they had stopped a parent who was going to come to my room to talk with me about her child. The office asked if I was available... Um, no? I have a room full of kids! I said to tell her she'd be welcome to come up after all the kids had left or before school tomorrow. The parent wanted a time during the school day. Um, no, sorry.
So, parents, unless you have set it up ahead of time, don't just pop in for a conference. Feel free to come observe in my room, but don't think I'm going to be available to talk.
Thank you. :)
