3/6 conferences

I heard a lot of positive feedback from parents about some of the changes in class this semester. They seemed to like that their students were getting much more individual attention from other students in the class. Many of the parents also liked the comments on the grades that showed missing assignements and careless mistakes on tests. I did hear from a couple of parents that were not too happy with students learning from other students. They were very understanding of why I implemented the policy and even thought it was a good idea, but just asked that I work with their child a little more because they were more comfortable hearing it from a teacher. All in all it was good to hear some positive feedback that some of the changes might actually be working.

That is good to hear. We had a similar conversation on Friday where many teachers echoed the same sentiments - that parents were very positive about the changes that were occurring - and that the focus of conferences shifted away from points and grades and were more about learning.
