This is the teachers’ favvvvorite topic! Parents this is becoming a big issue nowadays and it’s like the new trend!

Everyday during dismissal half of the parents don’t show up, but who does instead? Either the nanny or the driver…If i were a parent I would do anything just to see my child‘s face at the end of the day and hug him and get into the car together and get ready to go home. Believe me it would mean the world to them!

This is one issue,,,however another issue is the homework. I had a few kids whose homework wasn’t done by them and when I asked them they would tell me my nanny did it or she is helping me with my school work. Say what????

Please note that the nannies or helpers in our community are not very well educated and their English isn’t that good. Many of my kids used to speak incorrect grammar because they used to copy their nanny.

Now that is shocking, first teachers are not sending homework for your nanny to complete it and second parents or siblings are the ones who are supposed to support.

Where is the family bonding? Where is the parent’s involvement? This just saddens me and please note that this will affect the child mentally.

Yesterday was the day where I met the parents of my kids…It was a great and positive day, the parents were amazing and a bit nervous about the upcoming year.

Parents tend to be worried all the time, if you are a parent you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about… Some parents came up to me and informed me of their child‘s behavior in class or where she wants her child to sit. I smiled and nodded and was pleased to get all these information from them. Some teachers get annoyed by this but I on the other hand don’t, I love to communicate with them because after all I’m teaching their kids and they all want what’s best for their child.

It is very important for you to attend the parent’s orientation in the beginning of the year, if you do not have time then make some time it’s not going to take more than 2 hours. In the orientation you will get to meet your kid’s teacher, visit their class, learn about school policy and procedures, dress code, rules, what to expect in each subject.

Have a great year teachers and parents!

By the way tomorrow is our first day of school! Exciting!! I have to wake up early tomorrow so good night everyone!
