The preparation and stress to prepare for the SLC’s (Student Led Conferences) was more than I had anticipated, however, the result made it all worthwhile. I was so proud of my students leading their conferences with their parents. I was surprised that some of my most outspoken students were the most timid and anxious. I had not realized how nervous they were. I loved seeing how the parents interacted with their children. I allowed for 30 minutes for each conference, which seemed like too much time, but we used every minute. I think one conference ended 5 minutes early, but other than that, it was needed. It also allowed me to discuss some important issues regarding individual students. Overall, I received positive feedback from parents and I felt really pleased about the entire day. I look forward to moving to the next step and developing deeper reflections with the 4th graders. I am sending home a survey to the parents and hopefully I will get some positive comments to share.
