Communication Example: How to Make Individual Phone Calls to Families

man on cell phone

This Edutopia article has many good suggestions for how teachers can make phone calls home to families.

“My biggest mistake was that I waited to make those calls. I was young and nervous. Once I did start calling, I quickly learned what a valuable resource parent and guardian support can be. And I was asked several times, “Why didn’t you call sooner?”

We love that this article suggests using your first name with families and beginning the conversation with a positive. In fact, an entire phone call can just be to say hello and share a positive thing about their child/young adult!
