Teachers and parents, or teachers as parents

parent-child-teacher-partnershipA few times in recent months I and other teachers have been asked by caregivers to help with modification of students behaviour at home. I am not convinced this is part of the job but human nature being what it is you can at least give advice – if you have some to give… As pasteral care becomes an increasingly larger part of a teachers role I wonder how far the boundaries are going to shift? Sadly more pasteral care means less teaching preparation and feedback – Is this right? Perhaps in the future you will not just need teaching expertise and deep knowlege to facilitate learning… just be a WINZ social worker?
