Tonight is parent teacher conference night. I love being able to talk to parents and collaborate with them to ensure their child's success. Our school did it a little different this time. We participated in student led conferences. We as teacher's took a back seat and the student shared with their parent how the class worked. They discussed their strengths and weaknesses. They even showed their parents their agendas.
I really enjoyed listening to the students explain themselves to their parents. The comments I heard were touching, funny, and encouraging. For the most part the kids took pride in their accomplishments and let their parents know how they could do better. I was sceptical about this whole process at first but now I believe it was a good experience. We always want our students to take responsibility for their learning. I can finally say that several of them did that tonight. I am super proud of our Warriors and look forward to seeing how student led conferences progress in the future.
