Parents & Teachers Working Together
Radio Spot as heard on KLBT 88.1 FM
I know, I know school has been in session for weeks. Well almost everywhere. Here in southeast Texas, we’ve had a really slow start due to Harvey hovering and destroying with tons of rain. Many of our schools were seriously damaged and so many lost their homes and vehicles, which is a disaster in an area without mass transit.
Now that students are in class and hard at work parents be alert.
I taught for twenty years-not a long career, but long enough. Long enough to know that parents make a difference in their child’s attitude towards learning. Children learn quickly to respect that which their parents respect. They learn to disrespect the people they hear the parent criticize.
It makes a big difference in your child’s success if you stay tuned and be in touch with the teachers.
I hold a degree from Lamar University in Speech and a Master’s from the University of Texas. I was an educator in regular and special education for twenty years, finishing my professional career as a Braille teacher. I am a Certified Professional Coach with Fowler International Academy. I married Sam after raising three children as a single mother. In 2007 I founded SMORE for Women. SMORE is a nonprofit association whose goal is Single Moms, Overjoyed, Rejuvenated, & Empowered. My stories have been published in several Christian books and magazines. My book, Living Learning Loving, published in July 2015, is available for purchase on CreateSpace, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble online.
