Watching my Grade 3 interacting with their parents during the Student-Led Conferences today has been quite an eye opening experience!
Some of my most outgoing, brave students became quiet, shy little mice. Others are as comfortable and relaxed as can be.
Some students become a completely different child with their parents. I find myself pondering the reasons as to why this could be. Do students feel uncomfortable mixing their school and home lives? Are the afraid they will not live up to their parents expectations?
It puzzles me as they all have so much to be proud of.
