I am a new teacher and our conferences are coming up soon. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. We only have 10 minutes for each parent, and we give them the report cards and go over them with them and everything. What else do you discuss? I know 10 mins. is not long, but are there any handouts or anything you give out? What's the usual format of a conference? Any help at all would be much appreciated! I'm a little bit freaked out right now..eeek!
