It’s back-to-school time! That means it’s time for new backpacks, new classmates, new teachers… and parent-teacher conferences.
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by contributing writer, Meghan Ross, for Care.com. Meghan was writing an article about Parent-Teacher conferences and wanted to know if we would like to be interviewed for the article. Well, of course we did, but we aren’t teachers, we’re parents, and we didn’t feel comfortable talking out of turn.
So, we reached out to our Contributing Education Writer, Anne Davis, and asked her if she wanted to give it a go. Anne has been both an elementary school teacher and a special education teacher for the past ten years. Needless to say, Anne was a terrific choice!
