I had a parent/teacher interview the other day for my 7 year old throughout her schooling i have only attended two interviews at these interviews i have no idea what to expect and what the teacher is to expect from me when the teacher asks me if i have any questions i ask how her writing is going and maths the basic questions what i really want to ask are questions that will make the teacher think twice lol and come across as a parent who does care about my childs education instead of also repyling "no i don't have any questions at this time but i will let you know if i have any concerns" wtf? being more prepared will be a huge help with my confidence aswell as the next parent interview lol some advice please moms:)

I teach 7th grade. Some of these questions may be better asked at the beginning of the year, but here goes....Questions- ask about homework policy- how much they get and if late work is accepted. ask how she handles make-up work if your child is out. Ask the best way to contact her phone, email or a note to school. ask if she has a web page for her class....does she update it. The elementary school that feeds my school has a policy that the teacher keeps all their work. Ask to see your child's work if they keep it at school. Ask to see more than one assignment in each subject. Check out your child's curriculum online- most states keep that info on their department of instruction website. Ask about specific objectives. For example, if they are supposed to learn how to add 2 digit numbers, ask specific questions to see how your child is doing. If your child is doing very well, ask about doing harder or upper level work. If your child needs extra help, ask about a tutor, etc...Ask about social skills....how your child is interacting with other students, who does your child interact with...etc...



Hope this helps some.

Hi Vickie, What Leslie said are all great questions you could bring up with the teachers. I have 3 boys and I am in the school all the time. I have a very active roll with my children and their school work and the teachers know this as well. One other thing that looks real good to do is to keep some of her work, maybe some that you may have questions on and take it with you to the next meeting and ask them about it, or take some of her work that you have noticed her doing well and let them know that you have been checking out her work.
