    • Whatever support you ask from a parent needs to be something that is within her sphere of influence.
    • Always convey a growth mindset. All behaviors can change given the right conditions. If you want to see changes and have concerns about a student, be prepared to offer specific, actionable solutions
    • If this is the first time you're sitting down with parents, it's a great opportunity to hear their perspective on their child's school experience so far, on what their child likes to do outside of school, on the questions and concerns they have about their child, and so on.
    • Don't underestimate the power of the positive, and lead with it.
    • Be specific in the positive data you share -- tell an anecdote or show a piece of work.
  • "New ways to think about how people learn."
