It's that time of the year when things are getting CRAZY! We've got Red Ribbon Week, Halloween, my formal assessment, and a ton of Professional Development. We have a ton of district assessments for the next two weeks because our trimester is ending and you know what that means...REPORT CARDS and PARENT CONFERENCES. Oh my! I use to really dread conference time. It wasn't that I didn't have friendly parents, but it felt like a a lot of pressure and sometimes I feel that I'm not good enough or have no clue what I'm doing. Can you relate? In my head, I'm wondering what the friendly faces sitting across the table from me are thinking. I found that it's best to be as prepared as possible. Since I've implemented this system, the anxiety on both sides has come down quite a bit.
