    This course strengthened my belief that a strong home/school connection is imperative in the primary grades. When I signed up for the course I wasn’t sure if I was communicating in ways to reach every parent. This course helped me to change my beliefs in ways to communicate with distracted and indifferent parents. The most exciting part of this course was when I utilized a strategy during Spring Conferences with a parent and it worked!

    I think that the list of strategies for dealing with different parents was most helpful I think this course will only help me better communicate with parents in the future and I will take some of the suggestions from this class and utilize them in my future parent conferences and phone calls.

    I found this course to be helpful in numerous ways. Most of this information I have heard from time to time, but I liked that it was all packaged together. I always complain that other courses do no give enough examples. This class had a whole lesson dedicated to partnering strategies. It give us actual examples and explanations of what we could use and how. This course gave valuable techniques in order to make communication easier.
