Pupils, parents share conference stories
E. Russell Hicks Middle School students Lexi Turano, Lindsey Beall, Nicole Thompson and Jordan Cannon told the school board Tuesday night about their experiences in student-led conferences with their parents.
"I think that it was a good program because our parents got to know ... what we did in a professional way," Lindsey said.
Susan Beall and other parents said they learned more about their children by attending the conference.
"I learned that she thinks in words. I never knew that. My child is 11 years old, and I never knew that, that she thinks in words," Beall said.
