It's PTM again in school. I have only two appointments, but I expect a few walk-ins. I do not mind meeting parents of my students. It is good to connect with their parents so that we have an understanding of the ecosystem that nurtures them. What piques me is the way it is done. Teachers sit in rows in a big hall, at assigned places, while parents go from one teacher to another spending a maximum of ten minutes with each teacher. I suppose this is the most efficient way to get the meetings done but it's too mechanical.
