I've worked for nearly a decade in education, primarily with children who have developmental delays or gifted abilities, and I've discovered some fundamental truths along the way. After one particularly rough day I learned to always bring hand sanitizer with me. I've also found that there's no such thing as a "bad kid." Yet, perhaps the most important thing I've learned is that children thrive when everyone — teachers, family, tutors, etc. — support them. So if you're looking for ways to help your child blossom in school, you might be wondering how to build a good relationship with your kid's teacher.
There is some solid truth to the old adage that it takes a village to raise a child. If you're anything like me, you want your child to know they have an entire team rooting for, supporting, and encouraging them. So having a good relationship with the educators in your child's life strengthens the network of healthy, productive communication.
Additional perks of having a great relationship with your kid's teacher is that you can stay on top of things more easily, you'll always be "in the loop," and you and your child will be less hesitant to voice concerns if an issue ever arises. So if you'd like to know how to build a relationship with your child's teacher, then check out these simple tips.
