How to Easily Establish a Genuine Parent-Teacher Relationship


Dear Parent,

As your child’s teacher, I spend almost eight hours with him/her, five days a week. I listen to their stories about how they lost their tooth, how their dog died, or how they mastered the next level on their video game. I tie their shoes, fix their owies, and help them bundle up before embracing the cold. I LOVE YOUR CHILD and want what’s best for them, just like you do.

From the time your child sets foot in my classroom to the moment they leave I am instilling in them life skills as well as academics. We are respectful. We are kind to one another. Every comment made is valued despite its relevance.

Please know that I went into education because I wanted to make a difference. I didn’t go into education because I “hate children” or want to “make your lives miserable.” I did not go into education to be rich and famous. I did not go into education because I couldn’t do anything else. I went into education because I want to change the world and shape the leaders of the future.

Just because I don’t have children does not mean I’m not loving or nurturing. It does not mean that I’m incompetent when it comes to children and their struggles. Please know that when you say things as personal as this, your words cut deeply.

Please understand that I am only human. I am doing my best and somedays I make mistakes. When you hear about my mistakes from your child, please forgive me and give me the benefit of the doubt.

Your child may tell you “we do nothing” and they’ve “learned nothing” but that is never the case. Please come in any time to see what is happening in our classroom.

Everyday your child is praised and given opportunities to feel successful. Please tell me the things I’m doing right as well. I try to do this with your child, so please do it with me.

I believe that you and I are a team. We can work together to support and help your child be the best they can be. If you have a suggestion or concern, please come talk to me. Please don’t talk to my administrator, other teachers, or your friends about your concerns before giving me the chance to address them. Please know that I would never talk about your child with another parent or friend. That information is confidential.

I, too, lose sleep when I am worried about your child. I spend countless hours preparing lessons and activities to help your child realize that learning can be fun. I know that we may have some differences, but we are in this together and have your child’s best interest at heart.

Sincerely,

A Loving, Honest Teacher

  2. Wow I truly felt like I dished out all my thoughts that I’ve been holding in my mind for the past two days and Read it on this blog, I wish that I can copy paste and send this to every parent I have. I truly feel like it’s unfair that we are targeted by all the little things that are mainly misunderstood, when we spend 20 to 30 unpaid hours a week to make sure that our classroom is at its most greatest potential for our students. We try to do the best we can to impact lives on a daily basis and the same achievement goals aren’t being pushed at home :( #iloveteaching
