Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Home and school; Parent-teacher relationships; Home visits (Education);
This article is based on a teacher's personal experience with home visits and the feedback she received from parents. The home visits allowed the teacher to have a holistic view of students and their families. Quotes from an on-going journal convey a deepened relationship between the teacher and her parents. The goals of the home visits were to gain a deeper understanding of the children as readers, and communicate the child's developmental progress to the parents. Another goal was to understand parent perceptions toward home visitations, and build a parent/teacher partnership based on mutual respect. The results section of the paper is organized into three sections. The first section shares the students' responses; the second section explains the parents' responses; and last, the teacher's impressions of home visits are described.
