Parent-teacher conferences: purely academic? http://t.co/TQEavIyU2N

When I was in the classroom, I always believed in affect before acquisition. If a child wasn’t feeling secure, valued and content, his or her learning was at risk. Now as a counselor, I so appreciate when parents take time on a busy day of conferences to check in with me and ask about the social and emotional life of their child.
Thank you Jennifer Brozost and Vimmi Shroff for your insight.
