It is truly hard to believe that almost six years ago to the day I began working at Weinacker’s Montessori School! Fresh out of college, I accepted the position as the Infant Room teacher at the Midtown location. It was an amazing two years; there were so many contributing factors that made my experience so wonderful, but the thing that made the whole experience so special was the parent/teacher communication.
When I first accepted the position I was super excited, however I was a little nervous because I had never worked with these infants before and I barely knew the parents, so acknowledging this, I made it my mission to establish meaningful relationships with every family that I worked with on a daily basis. I could not imagine working with these wonderful babies everyday and not having a close relationship with their parents. Within weeks, we were all one big happy family! I still to this day, have very close relationships with many of the parents from the Infant room at Midtown, even though their children are now almost five years old!
In just three short days Weinacker’s will be kicking off the start of their 2013-2014 school year! How exciting is that?! I think the most exciting part of a new school year is all the new relationships that will be formed or strengthened. The start of a new school is the perfect time to establish new, positive relationships between parents and teachers.
Have a great weekend!
