I often don’t have time/am not allowed to lookup cards during the day. What can I do?
You are not alone! Many teachers are consumed with the overall management of the classroom, from general child welfare to behavior and safety. TIPS understands this. When teachers have a very active classroom, reading expert articles and looking up tip cards at that exact moment is not an option. This is why TIPS provides access to professional development in a variety of ways, using electronic media and on-line webinars that can be accessed on-demand, making information immediately available to you.
Don’t be afraid to tell a parent “I have a resource for that. Let me look it up tonight and we can visit about it tomorrow”. You can look up the TIP card at your convenience, follow-up with a conversation with the parent, and then share the TIP as a reminder.
