Gail Tillery, an NBCT in Cummings, Georgia, offers numerous suggestions to help teachers understand how to positively and productively communicate with parents. These tips come from her 26 years of experience as a teacher. Her suggestions include everything from making contacts at the start of the school year to being proactive through early interventions. She also shares several suggestions to help save time and deal with difficult situations.
