Why have you created this webinar?

Upon research Rebecca has undertaken of what causes teacher’s stress, there was a huge response which indicated the impact of parental pressure. For example:

  • “Lack of support, pressure, parents having the freedom to do and say what they want”.
  • “Most of my stress comes from parents – especially since Covid. There is an expectation of 24/7 access”.

It was clear that teachers felt that there was a lack of professional boundaries and lack of support when challenging behaviours and additional needs were a factor.

Teachers are struggling to communicate effectively with parents and get the support they need.

Rahoo are passionate about professional development for teachers and have worked with over 11,000 teachers since 2017. As a teacher, you are the most important person in the classroom – you make the greatest impact on the students in front of you.

Facilitator: Rebecca Morrisey

Rebecca Morrissey, Junior Infant class teacher in an Educate Together school in

Dublin. Rebecca trained to be a Primary Teacher in the UK, taught for three years in

Qatar and have been teaching in Ireland for 4 years.

With this experience, Rebecca has met and connected with many different types of families, from many different backgrounds. As a result, she has clear ideas in how she can establish

professional relationships with any parent to better the learning experience of

the child.

In recent years, she has had to have some difficult conversations with parents with

regards to additional needs. This has taught me to be factual, empathetic and

aware of the next steps to support each child.

Meeting parents can be daunting, particularly if you need to have a sensitive conversation. But building professional bonds with parents can make the overall running of your classroom

a lot smoother with some simple tweaks.

This webinar aims to give you some guidance and structure to your relationships

with the parents and ensure that it’s a working relationship to benefit the

children. There will be simple tips in how to set out your availability to parents,

remaining professional and setting clear boundaries.

A downloadable Certificate will be accessible.
