I like the TIPS resource ….
You are not alone! Many teachers are consumed with the overall management of the classroom, from general child welfare to behavior and safety. TIPS understands this. When teachers have a very active classroom, reading expert articles and looking up tip cards at that exact moment is not an option. This is why TIPS provides access to professional development in a variety of ways, using electronic media and on-line webinars that can be accessed on-demand, making information immediately available to you.
Don’t be afraid to tell a parent “I have a resource for that. Let me look it up tonight and we can visit about it tomorrow”. You can look up the TIP card at your convenience, follow-up with a conversation with the parent, and then share the TIP as a reminder.
