Watch the Recording
Teachers are challenged on a regular basis by parents who feel their child is being treated unfairly at school. Administrators expect teachers to diffuse these situations with professionalism, but many educators lack training in this highly emotional area. Veteran teacher and administrator Shannon Holden shows early career teachers how to create and maintain positive relationships with volatile parents and difficult teacher-parent situations.
