Just curious. Usually they school instructs us to sign up for slots with 2 teachers. But this year it seems (per the technology and messaging) I could sign up for all or none of them. My kids have math, geography, robotics, and religion with their homeroom teacher, who is new to us this year, so I will be meeting with him. Their literature teacher is the same as last year, and the kids are doing fine in that class, so I don't feel like I need to meet her again. I have no plans to meet the art, music or gym teachers. That leaves the science, English, and Spanish teachers.
The only teacher that is new to me out of those 3 is the English teacher. But to meet with her, I would have to make a separate trip. I don't really have much to say to the science or Spanish teachers - I kind of know how they operate and don't honestly want to talk to them at this point. It may be interesting to talk to the English teacher (who is hopefully finally teaching my kids some composition skills), but I'm not so excited to meet her that I want to make a special trip.
Anyway, I'm a person who communicates better in writing. I always feel like I make a fool of myself in those conferences.
Would you skip the meetings other than the homeroom/math teacher? If not, why should I consider making the extra trip? Maybe you will talk me into it.
FTR at the present time, my kids are getting As and Bs in all their classes, and the only teacher giving accommodations that I know of is their homeroom/math teacher.
