It's that time of year - parent teacher conferences. Honestly I don't mind them. Since I only teach part time I only have to put in 3-1/2 hours for conferences in order to get November 11 off. So between emails, phone calls, and 'live' conferences I'll make that time without a problem.
Of course, the parents I need to see don't come and I'm not sure how to deal with that. But that is another post.
