6. Bring Snacks
This is important, especially if you are attending a one-day conference. The day will be hectic with little down time. Bring some snacks to munch on during your sessions or while you walk from one event to another. This will also keep you alert in the midst of a busy day. Some conferences go so far as to suggest packing a lunch and eating during a session. You can usually find that information in the conference guide prior to the event.
While teacher conferences can be overwhelming, remember that you don’t have to do it all. Read up on the conference ahead of time and get an idea of what you’re in for. Getting familiar with the specifics and planning for the conference will help to make this experience more meaningful and less daunting.
