W~rried about grades? lans after HS? Meet e teacher?What- ever your reason for visiting your child's teacher, it's im- portant to remember that you and the teacher are partners in helping the transition to adulthood. The combined support of you, teachers, counselor, will be essential to help your child get on the right track to achieve goals. Being involved in your child's life at school is important. It's important for your students COUNSELOR'S to know you're interested in what they are doing. If you stay informed about your child's dasses and activities, you'll be better able to give help or guidance when it's needed. A good relationship with your child's teachers will make it easier for you to work together if problems arise during the year. The teacher can also help you understand what your child experiences and inform you about school- work and responsibilities. Before you schedule a con- ference, ask your child ff there are any questions or concerns he/she would rtke you to dis- cuss with the teacher and find out likes and dislikes about the class. Let your child know what you plan to talk about. When your child is involved in decisions, he/she are more likely to take responsibility for work and performance. lot down any questions you may have before the meet- ing to make the most of your time. Depending on the age of your child, some questions you may want to ask: How has my child per- formed in your class so far this year?
