It was reported by the U.S. Department of Education that many teachers say they don’t often receive information about problems at home from their student’s parents. I think many teachers, counselors, and administrators would agree. But, on the flip side, parents often report that they don’t know what the school expects from them, as parents. It’s a tough balance to know just what information to share with your child’s school and knowing when you may have over shared. In general, anything you can share, as a parent, helps schools become better prepared to meet your child’s specific needs. So the questions remains, when exactly do I contact the school about problems my child may be experiencing?
After a few seminars on the subject at the end of last year, I couldn’t think of a better way to start my year than teaching my boys mindful breathing techniques.
In honor of Transformation Tuesday, I figured I’d show you my room’s transformation over the past day and a half. I always like starting each year with a new look for my room. It makes it feel fresh and new. Helping to separate out each school year from another.
