A gentle reminder ...

The goal of this blog initially was for Mr. Mc to show his students and friends what he doing while in Pennsylvania and DC in 2011. Now it's being used as a place for him, travelling colleagues and former students to discuss edumacation and history related "stuff" as well as ... well, anything which pops into his head. Mr. Mc would never knowingly embarrass either the school he loves or the family he is devoted to. By joining in the discussion, he expects the same of you.

Dante and teacher conferences...

I'm sitting here in parent teacher conferences. Don't be jealous! I have two days of these puppies...again, don't hate!

I actually like them for the most part. Education is a partnership and the best ones come from all three parties (student-parent-teacher) playing well in the sandbox. Most of the parents wants what's best for their kids. So do teachers. If that is the common denominator, then even the most difficult conference is a 'good conference".

The conferences where teacher, parent or student have axes to grind--Dante couldn't envision a ring of Hell for those.  Those are the conferences which give conferences a bad name.  Those are the exceptions, not the rule and so should be treated as such.

Well, its my tun to talk ....
