United We Learn: 11 Rules for a Better Parent-Teacher Partnership

Communicating and coordinating regularly with your child's teacher isn't being pushy or overbearing; it's giving him every opportunity he deserves to shine at school. Here, learn how to best bridge the home-school gap and get the teacher on your side.

Communicate at the Teacher’s Convenience

Talking with your child’s teacher is much easier these days—emails, texts, phone calls, updates on websites. Early in the year, talk with the teacher to find out which method works best, so you can stay updated with what is going on in the classroom and homework assignments. Email may work one week, text another. Also determine with the teacher how often you should talk.
