We've been in school for 7 weeks now and I still haven't met all my students parents. The sad reality is that at the end of this year there will be several parents I will have never spoken to or met.
I have 19 students. I've met 12 of their parents in person. We had meet the teacher before school, open house a few weeks in, and family day. A couple of parents who missed those came to visit on other days.
Two of the others I have spoken to on the phone but not met in person.
That's five parents I've never spoken to or met and I spend 6 hours a day with their child. I can't imagine not putting any effort into to getting to know a person who spends that much time with my child.
Any explanations as to why some parents don't want to speak to or meet the teacher?
