Parents and Teachers: Building Bridges


If I asked you who was important for you during your educational development in your childhood, probably most of you would easily mention two significant roles: parents and teachers. These ‘key actors’ play such an important role in our educational path, not only because we learn from them and because they teach us but also because they inspire us and help to create who we are. It is easy to notice that both parents and teachers take part in non-formal and formal education of children and teenagers. This, it is very important to create the environment where the youngsters feel safe and they can develop their skills and gain knowledge while surrounded by supportive and integrated community. The message received by pupils should be clear: ‘we all are here for you!’

However, is it possible to create such a ‘dream team’ at schools? What kind of strategy should be used to do so? What tools and ideas can be applied? What can teachers do to build good partnership with parents?
