Hi-Noon: Teacher’s Conference, Oh My!

On her Facebook wall, Cindy writes that she's "heading out to 5th grade parent/teacher conference. Sam is smart and personable and teachers love him. So, why do I always feel nervous before conferences? Am I the only one who feels like this is also a parental performance review?" I never felt nervous re: those reviews, just weird that I had to scrunch into a student's desk to listen to the teachers tell what they did and whether or not the kids were doing well.

Question: Do you feel as though a teacher's conference is a parental performance review?
