What is your approach to conferences? As you may have guessed, this is parent conference week. When you have a student who is overweight and struggling or a student whose skills are way below grade level how do you handle your parent teacher conference? Do you come right out and discuss the issues? Do you talk about how much you like their child and just hope that the topic of obesity comes up? Do you share the grade level evidence outcomes and then suggest some ways the parents might help?
