  1. very nice listing. you covered all required things that are necessary to have before stepping in to school.
    And if we get all such things from one place that is fantastic, no headache at all.

  2. Great tips ! I have several new teacher colleagues at my high school, and they will find this very useful. At our school, BTSN is organized so parents travel from class to class according to their student’s schedule – 10 minutes per class, and a passing period. 10 minutes is very short, so I have developed a PowerPoint slide show to keep me focused as I present all the basis information, and leave the last couple minutes for questions. Like you suggest, I have clipboards around the room where parents can sign in and leave me contact info, and questions for later follow up. I am sure to have extra copies of my “French Class Success Guide” which I give to students the first day of school. I ask them to share it with parents, but teens are sometimes forgetful (I am sure that surprises you deeply!). The most important thing, is to make a positive connection. It may be the only time we ever meet the parents of most of our students, but that human contact provides context for emails and phone calls for the whole year!

    Who else has some ideas to share? Looking forward to the conversation.
