My first parent call

It was last Saturday morning, 8 am, to be exact.

The student made an inappropriate joke in class - directed toward me - and I thought I'd surprise him (and his mom) by calling.

The call was great actually; his mother was a very bright, astute woman and I think we both ended up enjoying the conversation.

I have to say the student in question was very much on task the following Monday as well. In all, it was a good experience - though I realize not all calls will be so smooth.

Parent calls and discussions with coaches - two arrows I'm keeping in my discipline quiver to be sure.
