I'm helping my fiance who just graduated this Spring and was hired as a fourth grade teacher at a new school, but we are both unsure about what to do with one of the parents. Nikki (my fiance) receives almost daily emails from this parent with multiple questions. This parent is always trying to get as much information as possible about her students' progress. Nikki is very understanding and professional in her communications, but she is already overworked and doesn't have the time to write a clear response to these emails (They usually have 3-5 questions that require complex answers). She posts homework online and gives detailed instructions to students, but this parent is not a native English speaker. How should Nikki deal with this situation? She is always happy to email parents, but this one is very insistent and taking huge chunks of time from her already crazy schedule. I'm really worried that Nikki is going to work too hard and burn herself out in the first few years, but I guess that's a problem for another post. For now, I just want to find a way to help reduce the disproportionate amount of time and energy this parent requires. Thanks!
