First of Hello to everyone as this is my first post here. I've started my first job as a Pre-k teacher this past September. So far I love it, I have a great group of children, an awesome group of teachers and a great boss where I work. Unfortunately though I have one problem. A lot of the parents at our center do not like me or are uncomfortable with me working there because of the fact I'm a male...I'm the only male to ever work at our center in the 10 years it's been open. All of my reviews from my boss have been perfect, all my co workers comment on how the kids all love me, but there are still complaints of me being there. I always try to talk to the parents and be friendly and involve them in what's going on in the class but there's still some that just aren't ok with it . My first parent teacher conference will be coming up this month so I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or have dealt with this before.? Also sorry for the length of the post.
