Parents and guardians have the chance to see what is happening in various classes on campus as part of Monday’s Meet the Teacher from 6-7:30 p.m. The event will allow parents and guardians to move freely throughout campus and visit with teachers as wanted.

It won’t be students filling the halls and classrooms on campus Monday. Instead it will be parents and guardians who are being given the opportunity to check out the school, and learn more about the curriculum of classes at the Meet the Teacher event starting at 6:00 p.m.

“They [parents] may wanna know how much homework is involved or how their student will be graded, but at the end of the day, they wanna know, is the kid going to be engaged,” history teacher Jeff Crowe said. “Is the teacher passionate about what they’re teaching? Is this someplace that they would like their kid to get an education?” 

Monday’s event could benefit both parents and students according to freshman Mahi Kosuri.

“Meet the teacher night would be beneficial to our students because parents would understand what we are doing in our classes, and our parents can help us with what we are doing,” Kosuri said.

Along with most other teachers on campus, Crowe will be there to provide resources for parents.

“I think I’m going to make a QR code and a website for them to look at our lessons [and] our curriculum so they can keep up with what the kids are learning,” said Crowe. But basically, I’m just here to answer questions and make them feel like they can reach out any time and [to] make sure they know we have the best interest of their kids in mind.”

The Career and Technical Education Center is also holding a “Meet the Teacher Night” Tuesday from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. and it is open to parents with students who attend classes at the CTE Center.
