Use this printable parent-teacher conference worksheet to help you figure out what you want to talk about and which questions to ask. Sometimes the hardest part, is starting the conversation. Combine the worksheet questions with some of these conversation starters and see how much you learn during this year's conferences! These are great resources to provide to families at the start of the school year.
