Want to help your students do better in school? A group of teachers has some suggestions.
The best way to help is to communicate with the teacher. A panel of educators tells The Salt Lake Tribune parents should get teachers' e-mail addresses. A principal suggests giving teachers positive comments or simple thanks. Also, the panel says don't speak disrespectfully about a teacher in front of your children.
If you have a problem, go to the teacher first, not the principal, and do it in person or over the phone so they can hear your tone of voice.
