My students inspire me everyday. I am fortunate to work in a profession where I am continuously learning from my students just as I prepare and teach a lesson to them each day. It is my experience teaching in a local high school that has shown me that the education system is imperfect. It has shown me why it is essential that we know how to navigate these waters in order to avoid the rocks and to ensure our children don’t sink or get left behind.
What we hope to create together is a community of active parents and their young learners who come together to better prepare our children for success both in and out of the classroom. Our community will try to:
- Better inform parents of grade level milestones
- Teach parents literacy strategies to use at home
- Develop important literacy skills in our young learners
We hope that by you participating in this online community we can inspire other parents to join us – And who knows what positive change can come from that! After all, as Margaret Mead famously said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
