Greetings! I’ve got a TOUGH group this year. No one is violent nor does anyone elope or refuse to come inside the classroom (some of my colleagues have the aforementioned issues), but I have 4 boys who are SO INCREDIBLY ACTIVE! Everyone has a wobble stool instead of a regular chair. I allow them to stand up while doing work, I do frequent transitions, and I give a lot of brain breaks. We are always moving and grooving. Anyway, whenever I’ve tried to bring up concerns to these 4 parents, only 1 out of 4 seems to genuinely care. The other 3 avoid me at dismissal (all first graders get picked up at a particular gate and teachers wait with them until their adult comes) or don’t respond to my messages and phone calls. They also didn’t show up to parent-teacher conferences. It seems like each year, parents get less and less interested and involved in their child’s education. Anyone else experiencing this? I’m not the type of teacher who wants to share negative things everyday, but there are definitely times when I need to bring up a concern to a parent. Heck, there are even times when I want to share GOOD news, but can’t.
