Navigating Communication Challenges in Independent Schools

May 1, 2024

In this interactive session, we will lead our Parent-Teacher Conference simulation, focusing on communication between teachers and parents regarding student performance. The simulation highlights the challenge of parent-teacher conferences becoming difficult for teachers when assumptions differ between the teacher and parent about the focus of the conversation. Through this simulated scenario, participants will have the chance to engage in thoughtful discussions with peers.

Thank you to ADVIS for inviting us to their Business Partner Showcase Day!
