Parent Teacher Conferences or the Most Embarrassing Day of My Life?

I will save the most embarrassing day of my life for tomorrow! Ha! Tonight was my first ever parent-teacher conferences!! They did not go so well-they went AMAZING! I felt like I was talking to old friends. I wasn't nervous... I guess I didn't have time to be. I think it is so special to show the parents how far their children have come, especially my low ones! I really feel like I am making a difference in these kid's lives. I showed the parents their child's first writing in first grade and then their writing from today and it is astounding how much of a change in it. I love seeing smiles on their faces from being proud of their children. It really shows that my work is paying off! I love teaching more and more each day and so thankful I am at such a good school. I have wonderful kids and parents that are so supportive and involved. I am so thankful to teach six and seven year olds everyday and so thankful to enjoy getting up in the morning!

  1. Yeah for you! I think conferences would be nerve racking, especially at the beginning of the year. The children in your class are very lucky to have such an amazing teacher!

  2. Congrats! The first are the worst. I definitely had some angry parents at my first one! So much so I had to work with the principal to prove that it WASN'T my fault!
