    Hi to Melissa~

    I see that I missed your deadline in reading this, but just wanted to pass along some information.

    I strongly recommend a wonderful book titled “The Essential Conversation: What Parents and Teachers Can Learn from Each Other” by Sarah Lawrence-Lightfoot. My preschool teacher colleagues recommended this book to me and it was very insightful.

    Personally, I’d find social networking sites to be less conducive to good parent/teacher communication. When parents have concerns about anything that happens in the classroom, a face-to-face or person-to-person phone conversation is the best place to start. A lot can be misinterpreted online, and we can get to the heart of a specific issue much more quickly. More general information (content the parent is happy to share with the group) might be passed back and forth via email and perhaps social networking, but overall, person to person contact is a parent’s best bet for making sure that A. the teacher understands the concern/message and B. they receive a response and aren’t left unduly hanging.

    My apologies for chiming in so late, but perhaps this information can help you in the future.
