Parents and teachers play a crucial role in a child’s growth, development as well as career. It is why there should be an effective communication between parents and teachers so that both can facilitate the child to do better in academics as well as in life. Effective communication consists of a number of things like meeting with teacher, being an enthusiastic partner during learning, keeping the communication lines open and don’t leave any chance of communication gap.
Here, with the help of parents and teachers, we have collected some super ways to build an effective communication.
Help teacher understand your child
No one can understand your child the most in this world except you. You are perfectly aware of what your child thinks, how s/he behaves, what are his/her plus points, what distracts him/her and a lot more information. Help teacher in understanding your child by providing all these crucial information.
Make smart use of communication app
In today’s tech-savvy world, there are several communication apps for teachers, parents, students as well as school that help in an excellent way to connect all the parties involved in academic process. You may ask your child teacher if they use any such app. By signing up for the app, you can instantly send and receive notes, pictures, files, assignments or any other information that is going on at the child’s school.
Best way to contact
The preference and methods for communication vary from teacher to teacher. Ask the teacher the best way s/he is comfortable for contacting them. Some teachers are comfortable with communication apps, while others still prefer emails. Also, ask teacher about the right time to contact them so that you don’t disturb their privacy. Don’t expect instant replies or notes for every query you request to them. A teacher has to manage a large group of multiple classes. So, they can’t be available every time for every parent.
Apart from these steps, make sure that you choose your words very carefully while addressing the teacher. Keep your emails or notes short, crisp and to the point. Don’t insert irrelevant words, graphics, or pictures in your messages. If teacher forgets to reply you, politely remind them.
